Searching the forums, looking for other similar errors, but I didn’t find anything.
My friend had a working vault. He moved the entire set of folders and files to Google Drive and shared it with me. Then I installed the Google Drive Desktop App (Windows 10). Now the shared folder is just like a folder on the computer. The path looks like O:.shortcut-targets-by-id\1_CJiTUbC…AWF\VaultName\
When I try to open the vault, I get an error saying "An error occurred while loading Obsidian. Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, stat ‘O:.shortcut-targets-by-id\1_CJiTUbC…AWF\VaultName.obsidian\plugins\desktop.ini’. Two buttons are available: “Reload app” and “Open another vault”.
In Windows Explorer, if I navigate to the plugins folder it is talking about, desktop.ini does exist in that folder. Now, just by navigating there, if I press “reload app”, it works and loads the vault.
Problem is, it only works until I reboot my computer, at which point I have to do the whole navigation thing again. Note that the path is not changing (I checked all the weird letters etc and they are identical).
Is there a way I can workaround this problem? Thanks!
