I love the app, it gives me 50GB free space, but the icon sucks. I have paper icons installed. And I want to change it to something that goes along with it. Can I manually change the icon to something of my choice ?

Finally found the answer. For anybody looking. rafael's answer on the question change skype icon wingpanel. Install elementary+. It works for megasync. :)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybre/elementaryplus
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install elementaryplus

Open up file manager and navigate to where the app is installed. My guess would be /usr/bin. Right click and go to properties. There should be an option to change the icon.

If not go to /usr/share/application/. In there find the .desktop for your app, open it with Audi privileges and update path to icon URL.
