I have checked several times and there are no files, no music, etc. in my Ubuntu One account. Yet, every ten minutes I get a popup that tells me my account is full, and offering me the opportunity to buy more storage.

Why would I want more storage, when I don't use what I have? How can I turn off these reminders?
