The config files are located at
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/maestral on Linux (typically
~/Library/Application Support/maestral on macOS. Each
configuration will get its own INI file with the settings documented below.
Config values for
excluded_items should not be edited manually but
rather through the corresponding CLI commands or GUI options. This is because changes of
these settings require Maestral to perform accompanying actions, e.g., download items
which have been removed from the excluded list or move the local Dropbox directory.
Those will not be performed if the user edits the options manually.
This also holds for the
account_id which will be written to the config file after
successfully completing the OAuth flow with Dropbox servers.
Any changes will only take effect once Maestral is restarted. Any changes made to the config file may be overwritten without warning if made while the sync daemon is running.
