To change the email address that is used by MATLAB Drive Connector, please perform the following steps:
1. Terminate the MATLAB Drive Connector process:
Windows:
  1. End the process via Windows Task Manager > Details.
Linux:
  1. - Stop Drive Connector using:
  2. ~/bin/MATLABConnector stop
  3. - Terminate the MATLABConnector process
Mac:
  1. Terminate the MATLABConnector process
2. Rename the credentials file:
For the latest release of MATLAB Drive Connector (v1.6.0.9 at time of writing) delete or rename the config.info to config.old. The file is located in:
Windows:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\credentials\
Linux:
~/.matlab/credentials/
Mac:
~/Library/Application Support/MathWorks/credentials/
3. Start MATLAB Drive Connector and complete the setup.
For earlier versions or MATLAB Drive Connector or where the path/folder above are missing, please check the following locations:
Windows:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\MathWorks\MATLABConnector\services\credentials\config\
Linux:
~/.MATLABConnector/<hostname>/services/credentials/config
Mac:
~/Library/Application Support/MathWorks/MATLABConnector/<driveID>/services/credentials/config

Conor Burgess (Staff) posted the following here.
The latest release of MATLAB Drive Connector (v1.6.0.9 at time of writing) uses more secure storage for user credentials, so that file is no longer the one you need to delete. You should be able to achieve the same result by following the answer you linked to, but replacing the filepaths with:
Windows:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\credentials\
Linux:
~/.matlab/credentials/
Mac:
~/Library/Application Support/MathWorks/credentials/
