I’m brand new to Obsidian and have a problem: all the notes I’ve made are now showing up as blank (ie empty of contents) save for the note title itself. I’ve stored my vaults on the cloud, and when I go into the Cloud’s obsidian folder, the notes still seem to have some content. I just can’t see it in Obsidian itself.
Any idea what the problem might be?
Which cloud? Do you mean iCloud? What operating system are you on?
If you’re on Windows, iCloud is not recommended. It causes known issues.
If you’re on MacOS, your files might have automatically been offloaded to the cloud. Mac tries to automatically manage the space on your computer. Search results for 'optimize mac' - Obsidian Forum
There is a command in Obsidian, “Show debug info”. If you could also run that and paste the results here, that would help.

I don’t personally have any experience with OneDrive. But that is likely the problem.
