I had the same issue since I wanted to use BoxCryptor and encfs (which are using a file beginning with . for configs). I didn't want some improper solution in the
So I added an option ignore (or -i) and unignore in the to manage a list of files that should be excluded. For initialization I used the Files .grive, .grive_state and .trash.

Best wishes,

@Benfa this PR is fantastic... is it adding an exclude list? Any chance you could rebase it against and put it in a PR to him? grive seems to have died due to lack of merges, and not contributions.
