If Obsidian loads without the .obsidian folder in place but crashes with it there, it seems likely it’s a plugin causing the issue.

With Obsidian fully quit, the lowest impact thing to try is to move or rename the .obsidian/community-plugins.json file. This will disable all your community plugins but not remove them.

If Obsidian loads after that, you can check for plugin updates to see if there are any. Then slowly turn one plugin on at a time with restarts in-between to see what happens.
