I am running Dropbox on a linux server (no GUI) and I can't get Dropbox to remove a specific folder from its exclude list. I've installed the command line interface. Previously I ran dropbox exclude myfolder but when I subsequently tried to remove the folder from the exclude list, this is what happened:

dropbox exclude remove myfolder and then dropbox exclude list And it still prints: myfolder

I don't know how/where to begin debugging. Is this exclude list written to a file somewhere that I can manually modify? Any and all help appreciated.

Try running the command from the Dropbox root directory. For whatever reason the remove command seems to take better when executed from there.
