I have a lot of GB from Dropbox cloud storage space: can I use it to increase my Ubuntu One cloud storage space? And if yes, how?

No, the two services are not inter-operable.

@Oualid - This would help you better. – atenz Apr 30 '13 at 16:14
@Qualid - Dropbox and Ubuntu One are distinctly different services, though they offer the same basic function of providing cloud-based storage. (Google, Amazon and Microsoft also offer cloud-based storage services.) None of them will allow "pooling" of storage from other services. They will just tell you to add more storage on their service if that's what you're looking for. The technical difficulties of having all the cloud services having API hooks that would allow pooling and have that function seamlessly are not something they are going to invest in. – douggro Apr 30 '13 at 18:02
