home folder

We need more details. From the screenshot, it looks like you might be running on a live CD. Is that correct? If not, is the home folder on a separate partition? Please add the results of running df -h to your post. The out of mount might also be helpful, depending. Finally, have you enabled quotas? – Scott Severance Dec 20 '11 at 16:45
i have a folder target, that looks like my installation was broken – Dec 20 '11 at 16:50
??? I don't understand. What's a folder target? And the other info will help in any case. – Scott Severance Dec 20 '11 at 17:11

Your picture just shows us that your ubuntu folder accounts for 100% of the home folder size which is the expected behavior if you only have one account on this setup. That has nothing to do with quotas or size limits.
