What I’m trying to do

I am trying to move a closed vault from a folder at onedrive to a folder at c:.…

Things I have tried

I tried the move it with the 3-dotted-menu, move vault… it ends with an error … what do I wrong?

The three dots Move vault should work, but OneDrive may have a lock (or something) on one of the files/folders in your vault. I’ve seen similar before.

With Obsidian closed, you can move the vault folder using Windows File Explorer. Once it’s moved, you’ll need to re-direct Obsidian to the new location.

In the vault picker (from another vault, the Sandbox vault, etc.) choose Open folder as vault and select the new location. That should do it.
