Steps to reproduce: I downloaded the app to my Mac. Installed it to the Applications directory. Started it up, and selected the first option on the intro screen. I think it said “make a vault” or something like that. I have closed the app multiple time, but every time I reinstall and restart, the “Loading vault …” process resumes. I have tried deleting the Obsidian app and the .obsidian subdirectory in my home directory, yet when I restart, the process resumes. I also tried deleting app and .obsidian directory, then restarting the Mac. Still no joy.
I tried hitting “Reload” on the “View” menu, and the following message comes up:
EPERM: operation not permitted, scandir ‘[directory name]’. It is stepping through the subdirectories of my home directory, so I now think it is loading my entire home directory - which may be hundreds of thousands of files and multiple hundreds of gigabytes.
Expected Result: I just expected to get a menu option or some sort of organizational screen
Actual result: Unstoppable load process - unless you have a solution for me.
Environment: MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 - Obsidian - 0.9.4
