Vault was deleted, upon syncing again, a file was missing

I’m using Obsidian with Sync and no 3rd party plugins.

At some point while editing a note, I received an error message about the current file, suggesting I back it up. I was not able to take note of the exact error message.

After this, I tried opening other notes, and the same thing happened with them.

After restarting Obsidian, my vault was gone and I had to re-add it to my local machine.

Once the sync was complete, the note I was working on had been deleted. I managed to restore it from the Deleted Files view, where it said the file was deleted on the computer I was currently using, but I deleted no files.

Edit: After looking again, my whole vault directory is in the system trash – including the missing file. I am 100% sure I did not manually delete it. I also did not get the popup confirming deletion.

Steps to reproduce

I am not able to reproduce this.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]
