sorry to hear that.
I’m having the same problem creating a vault on a SD card on a Samsung Galaxy 7/Android 8 and Obsidian 1.0.4 – no problem on local storage.
I solved my problem (just above) by using Autosync for OneDrive to sync a laptop backup to my phone’s sd card, then just opening the folder as a vault. Obsidian Sync might allow the same thing.
I very much appreciate the mobile version, BTW.
Same problem here, V1.0.4. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 / Android 7.0.
Thank you. It’s really working.
I also can’t open a vault from USB Drive (external SSD) on android 11 (Samsung OneUI). When I select the folder for the vault, it says: "Error: This path cannot be resolved: content://com.android.externalstorage.documents/tree/ … "
It works for me to create and edit in vault locally, but it defeats the purpose of having all my vaults on the external SSD. Can anybody help? Or is it a bug that needs fixing?
Edit: Obsidian version 1.0.4
Google recently introduced new security policies in Android to protect SD cards by restricting apps from writing to certain directories. It’s really frustrating.
Same problem here on Android 7 - Obsidian v1.0.4
Can create on internal storage but not on SD card in any folder.
Would appreciate some help! Thanks!
It’s working now. Maybe it’ll help us to solve the bug.
