Obsidian Sync - ALL NOTES EMPTY

Steps to reproduce

Starting from scratch, what are the steps to make the bug happen?
The fewer the steps, the better.
Type below: →
Create a large note connection 10,000 files
Sync from Windows
Sync to iOS (iPhone). Open on iOS.

Expected result

Files fully synced to iOs

Actual result

Previously content-rich files now contain nothing but links, as soon as you open a file, and edit it, the content gets deleted on WIndows too.
ALL files seem to be empty and contain only links.
Files that don’t contain any links are ABSOLUTELY empty.

just reproduced the error with a newer iPhone and latest iOS.
Might there be an issue with Synching from two devices at the same time? I’m uploading from my laptop while I’m downloading with my phone.

I don’t understand what is going on?

First, have a backup.

Has the sync fully completed on both windows and iphone?
