I am aiming to use Obsidian on my work PC, but am concerned about the possibility of my employer being able to access my personal files. I am looking for a solution that would allow me to use Obsidian without having to store my Markdown files locally on my work computer. Ideally, I’d like to have some sort of remote access to my files, or a method that ensures the files remain inaccessible to others while I’m using Obsidian. I have Obsidian Sync.
I have searched through the help docs and the forum for terms such as “remote access”, “cloud storage”, “non-local file access”, and “secure file access”. I have come across a solution named
obsidian-remote which involves running Obsidian in a Docker container and accessing it via a browser. However, this solution still entails having the Docker container (and thereby my files) on the local machine, which doesn’t entirely meet my needs.
I also explored various cloud storage solutions but none seem to offer seamless integration with Obsidian without local synchronization.
I am now reaching out to the community for insights or recommendations on how I might achieve my goal. Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My idea of remote access to my files may be wrong. I’m open to all alternative solutions.
