I’m thrilled to have stumbled upon Obsidian for a variety of reasons, chief of which is the quick sync between my devices–for daily note-taking I switch between a personal macbook air, personal imac, my iphone, and a windows pc for work, and until now I was switching between emailing myself (on the work laptop) and a handful of apps w/ iCloud, Dropbox, etc., on the other three.
However, I’m confused about the local storage aspect here–is there really no way to avoid copying my entire personal vault onto local storage whenever I want to pull up Obsidian on my work computer and add a quick note? For obvious reasons I’d prefer not to host a directory of text files detailing my personal projects and notes on a laptop I don’t actually own.
It seems like the only workaround is to ‘exclude’ the majority of my folders from the sync, but this doesn’t appear to be device-specific, so it doens’t actually solve my issue b/c I couldn’t sync those folders between personal devices, either.
Am I missing something here? Thanks in advance.
