Hi, I’ve just started to use Obsidian and I was not able to find an answer to this question. I would like to know if there is a difference in performance if I store the attachments (images, videos, PDFs) inside vs outside of the vault.
If I have a large number of attachments (let’s say 10 000+) and keep them in a folder inside of the vault, I assume that Obsidian has to load all of them and it could cause lagging, slow performance etc.
On the other hand, if I store the attachments in a folder outside of the vault and only link them to my notes using drag-ctrl-drop, it shouldn’t affect the performance, because Obsidian only has to load simple text files.
Are my assumptions correct? Can I avoid lagging and performance issues caused by too many large files if I store the attachments outside of the vault? Or it makes no difference?
