Mega.nz 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.

NOTE: By the nature of Mega.nz 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 Mega.nz web client moves deleted files. This directory is not
used by megatools when removing files.

Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to
