Daily note overwritten with Sync

Steps to reproduce

  • Spend all morning writing in the daily note on Linux’s desktop app (v0.13.26);
  • Open Obsidian on Android for the first time today;
  • Daily note appears blank;
  • After sync, daily note on desktop is blank too - data is gone.

Expected result

What I wrote on the desktop gets synced to mobile.

Actual result

Data in daily note disappears.

Additional information

Before some recent update, when I opened the mobile app it would just append what I had written on the desktop to my daily template. Not ideal, since I then had to clean up the note to remove the duplicate information, but at least I didn’t lose anything.

This was fixed in 0.13.27 desktop and the fix will be pushed to mobile in the next weeks with version 1.1.1.

You can recover you note using sync history or file recovery plugin.
