Is it possible to not sync dot files?


macOS stores folder attributes in a file named .DS_Store. Is it possible to store these locally and not upload them because they tend to clutter the Google Drive web interface.


Yes, you can exclude files using filtering.

I'm using a mount with FUSE. How do I do that?

Are you asking if rclone can not upload .DS_Store stuff created in a mount? The answer to that at the moment is no, but there are requests for a don't upload list in mount.

In general, I don't want DS stores to pollute my network drives so I turn that off.


Does DS_Store files store folder sizes by any chance? Helps when using SMB for large folders.
