I have recently created a new vault on iOS iPad. Accessing my vault using iCloud through either iPhone and iPad has been flawless. However I am unable to access the vault on a Windows PC using the web-based iCloud.
I am trying to access the vault on a Windows PC, input my previous vault into my new vault, and iPhone and be able to write notes on a Windows PC that will be saved on the iCloud as well that can be accessed on iPad and iPhone.
I have tried to copy and paste files from my previous vault into the new vault on iCloud through the web version.
But I am unable too due to app permissions stating “Only files that can be opened by Obsidian can be uploaded here”, even thou the files are in a .md format and are from my previous vault.
I have looked around on the forums but most posts are related to syncing issues between iOS devices.
If anyone has any suggestions that would be great,
Did you install iCloud sync on your Windows machine, and then open the sync’d folder? It’s unclear from your post (you only mention web-based iCloud, not a synchronized folder).
I had some luck with that option, but I have moved to using Syncthing. I have a Mac that is running all the time and has iCloud shared access to a vault that I can open on both iOS and Macs. I have Syncthing running on that Mac and also on a non-Mac server synchronizing the same folder to a Dropbox folder. Since both computers are running all the time, the folders stay synchronized remarkably well. I can then use Dropbox-based vault on any other computer (Windows, Linux, …). My server is running Linux, but you could use Syncthing on Windows just as well.
