  • Asked a friend who never installed obsidian: no problem

  • Asked the same friend to uninstall obsidian and delete remaini g folders (including the one with obsidian icon): problem reproduced - so my friend and I can’t use obsidian on mobile if iCloud enabled

  • No problem with Obsidian on MacOS, I reinstalled at the same time I wanted to move back all my productivity notes on obsidian
