Large amount of files start with CONFLICT-


I use Obsidian Sync between Android, Linux, iOS and Mac Os.

I have a large amount of files that get generated that start with CONFLICT-

This makes syncing between devices incredibly slow (because each file starting with CONFLICT seems to have to sync every time). I occasionally delete the files called CONFLICT, this doesn’t seem to fix anything.

Any ideas about what could be causing this and how to fix it?


Obsidian doesn’t generate conflict-. You are using something else beyond obsidian sync.

This happens to me because of a plugin called Binary File Manager. It creates the metadata files quicker than the Sync service can synchronize the vault. I use the command line to delete all files with Conflict in the file name.

find . -type f -name 'Conflict*' -print -delete 

Ah, yes. That looks like the problem – all the conflicts are metadata files.

Thanks for your help!
