Vault on removable volume disappears from vault list

Steps to reproduce

  • Vault folder exists on removable volume (Mac sparsebundle) and appears in open vault dialog list.
  • eject volume
  • quit and reopen Obsidian
  • Vault is no longer on list

Expected result

  • vault remains on list.
    • so that when volume is reattached, vault can easily be reopened.

Actual result

  • vault no longer on list.
  • can’t reopen with obsidian:///Volumes/volume_name/… link (path to vault on volume)


  • Operating system: Mac OS 10.15.7
  • Obsidian version: v0.8.15

This is still broken as of Obsidian 0.14.5. A regression maybe?

Or has it been rejected originally? It’s not clear from this post how it ended up in Bug graveyard.
