My most important vault is a Dropbox folder. It worked fine until today. When I attempt to open it with Obsidian, it crashes Obsidian. Once that has happened, I cannot reopen Obsidian without it immediately crashing. I have had to create new profiles on my computer just to open other Obsidian, but once I try to open the Dropbox folder, Obsidian permanently crashes for that account.
There are many other users sharing the folder as a vault, so I would prefer not to require everyone to change to a new one and I would like to be able to open Obsidian in my normal profile again without it immediately crashing. Is there any way to address this issue?
A series of screen shots is attached and described below. The folder in question is a Shared Dropbox folder. I have a Dropbox family account, invited users of that account can add the folder to their Dropbox for Desktop and use the same folder for a vault. That way each of us can update the same set of notes. We had no issues with it until yesterday when I suddenly was unable to open Obsidian.
Screen shot description:
I have created a new profile on my computer and opened Obsidian. You can see the Dropbox for Desktop window next to it. The folder marked with a Red dot is the one in question.
2-3. I can open another Dropbox folder called “Dummy1” as a vault
4-5. I can open the Obsidian help box without issue
6-8. When I try to open the Dropbox folder in question (the one with the red dot), Obsidian crashes and I get the dialogue boxes shown. From that point forward, no matter what I choice I make, Obsidian cannot reopen and I am presented with the same dialogue boxes.
Hope that helps. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
