We strongly recommend you to search the forum with possible keywords before submitting a new bug report.
Please also try your repro steps with restricted mode on (community plugins disabled), default theme and no custom CSS snippets, restart Obsidian, and see if it’s still reproducible.
On Desktop, you can use the Sandbox vault (lower left corner
? → Open Sandbox vault).
If it’s an issue with third-party plugins or themes, try contacting the author for help.
Mobile-specific bug reports should be filed here: https://forum.obsidian.md/c/mobile/18

Steps to reproduceRandom crash once a week or so. On startup nothing is lost. Today there was a crash and the whole 900KB file was gone, ie down to 0 bytes but still there as an empty file.
I expect a restart and have my note still there, with maybe a few characters missing from the last edit. After the crash the file was set to 0 bytes.

Is there a cache somewhere to recover this file. I am not syncing to anything. Just do backups to another disk. So in this case I lost one day’s worth of edits and not the whole file.
