Hi, I am having an issue with one of my vaults. its indexing but showing negative numbers, taking a long time, then stops before finishing (or so it seems, just sits on -8 for like 20 mins).
I am accessing it on a Windows 10 PC but the vault is stored on a hard drive connected via USB to my Mac Mini. The drive is formatted as fat so both OS’s can read/write to it. The network drive is added in explorer so the system has the path and login/pw always available. I have no problem accessing other vaults on that drive.
I accessed the vault once on another Windows PC and it indexed fine. It isn’t open currently on that or any other computer.
I have other vaults on that drive and can access them fine, one had 500+ records and I just added more via file explorer and when restarting Obsidian it found and imported them giving me 700+. The vault I am having issues with only has 79 ish files.
What can I do to fix it?
Things I have tried
- Restarted Obsidian
- Deleted the .obsidian folder
- Exclaimed “oh come on”
- Tried searching help file for where the index is stored in hopes deleting it would do something
What I’m trying to do
Let the vault index so I can use it.
example it won’t let me rename a note while indexing, the name field stay what I typed in it but the Obsidian tree and File Explorer don’t change.
