I lost all files!

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

After I updated obsidian, all my files lost!
I am sure I already logged in…
What can I do?

What did get lost?
all notes or also the vault itself?

Did you use the old help vault for your vault?
It specifically says not to use it as a productive vault as it used to get reset every so often.
With one of the recent update’s it got replaced with the sandbox vault and the latest update removed it from the list entirely.

If you did use the help vault your files are here:
Win: %appdata%/obsidian/Obsidian Help
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/obsidian/Obsidian Help
Linux: ~/.config/obsidian/Obsidian Help
please move them somewhere else and create backups going forward.

Your files are not lost because you have back-ups, haven’t you?
