What I’m trying to do
My obsidian no longer works after trying to open a vault stored in my Google Drive. I think I opened the wrong file, and now it’s messed up. Now, it shows the error code and doesn’t let me do anything.
Things I have tried
I tried uninstalling and installing Obsidian again and opening the command palette (ctrl+P), but it didn’t help. I can open the properties window. I searched for “mkdir ‘G:’”, but nobody else had this problem.
I am having the same issue when I opened the whole Google Drive folder instead of the one with my vault. Now I am stuck on loading even after uninstalling the app.
Please let me know if you figure out how to fix it
I fixed the issue the following way:
- Navigate to
obsidian.json file and modify the vault info (remove the extra vault and add open parameter to old vault)
I was having the same issue and accidentally chose the entire google drive for my vault location. I was able to fix the problem by following your solution and it works! I created an account to thank you and let everyone know this solution fixed my problem. Thanks again!
