Obsidian stuck while initially indexing in Android

Steps to reproduce

I try to open a new vault with Obsidian on Android, and it gets stuck while indexing and won't move past a certain point. I've tried with other vaults and it works fine, but with this particular folder of md files it gets stuck. I'm thinking it might be getting stuck on some strange text formatting (like accents from another language or something). Is there a way to find out which file it is getting stuck on?

Expected result

I expect Obsidian to just complete the initial indexing process.

Actual result

Obsidian gets stuck and won’t index


  • Operating system: Android
  • Obsidian version: 1.0.4

Additional information

I got this same behavior, but on PC, trying to open a folder/vault hosted on Google Drive (through File Stream)

Would that count as local?

Google Drive File Stream (and any other cloud service installed on PC/Mac/Linux) has a Cache folder on local drive, so…I think It does count. But I still got stuck on indexing process.
