$ megacopy --local MyBackups --remote /Root/Backups --download filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types. Nodes are identified by a 8 character node handles (eg. 7Fdi3ZjC). Structure of the filesystem is not encrypted.
Megatools maps node tree structure to a traditional filesystem paths (eg. /Root/SomeFile.DAT).
NOTE: By the nature of storage, several files in the directory can have the same name. To allow access to such files, the names of conflicting files are extended by appending dot and their node handle like this:
You need to be aware of several special folders:
Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.
Trash directory where web client moves deleted files. This directory is not used by megatools when removing files.
Not sure.
Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to add contacts to the list, simply create subdirectory named after the contact you want to add.
Directories representing individual contacts in your contacts list. These directories contain folders that others shared with you. All shared files are read-only, at the moment.
