Obsidian Vault hangs on indexing when the vault contains files stored with git-lfs

Steps to reproduce

  • Cloned a repo (my repo) from git with markdown files and 3 files stored with git-lfs (GitHub) with .7z extension
  • Opened my vault (I also have my .obsidian directory version controlled with git)

Expected result

  • Vault open without any issues

Actual result

  • Vault hangs on indexing

Additional information

Vault works fine without these 3 git-lfs stored files. Is there anyway to ignore there files? I tested with default obsidian configs as well. Same result. Vault hangs.

I can’t reproduce this. .7z files are not an issue.
