Unsupported files do not appear under folders

Steps to reproduce

With Obsidian running on restricted mode and with no theme:

  • open “Settings”
  • click on “File and Links”
  • activate the “Detect all file extensions” option.

Expected result

See all files within a folder that is contained on my vault, it does not matter its extension.

Actual result

Only Obsidian supported files are seen (pdf, md, images).

Additional information

it works for me.
Maybe the files are not (phatically) there.

Hello, WhiteNoise.

I understood what it is happening: iCloud is evicting the files to save up on disk space, and Obsidian can no longer see them.
