Obsidian deletes the content of the last saved note

Steps to reproduce

Exit Obsidian with any note, and re-open it.
Opening Obsidian results in the deletion of the content of the note displayed when closing the application.

Even with text in the Edit pane, the Preview pane shows nothing and changing the note o exiting the application renders the .md file completely empty.


  • Operating system: Win10 2004
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.10

Additional information

The title of this report is a bit misleading. It looks like it doesn’ show the content of the note. It’s not deleted, right?

Anyway, I can’t reproduce. Can you post a screen recording?

Rememeber to use default theme e no plugins where reporting bugs

Hi, sorry about the misunderstanding. It does not delete the file but the content.

Do you have third party plugin enabled?

Nope, I turned it off. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Obsidian after the video and it seems to be working fine now…

I’ll let you know if the issue comes back.

Also beware of how you’re syncing your notes. Sometimes sync engines can get a little overexcited (or underexcited), and it can be complex to suss out sources of trouble. Watch for other devices that are syncing content, etc.
