Does not mess up my data and leave me with orphaned zero length files.
I got bit badly by the bug in DTTG and lost over 400 files. Because they were in deep archive, I didn’t realize they were gone until I’d scrolled off several months worth of backups.
The primary function of a data mangement system is to not lose data.
All confidence in DT, DTTG and the entire DT ecosystem went out the window with that.
I’ll put up with the loss of key features like 3-pane view, the archaic and painfully difficult user interface, the cavalier attitude of suport when users explain why certain features are required or really useful and need to stay, and I did for over 10 years, but loss of data was the final straw. I’m moving out of DT as fast as I can.
Does obsidian provide more or better functions? Not really, there are a few that are better than DT. There are lots missing, but I will work around the issues to not risk losing data again.
Plus the attitude of the developers is miles ahead and more friendly than anything I’ve ever seen here. That, plus the vibrant and extensive plug-in develoment that is both encouraged by and supported by the Obsidian developers is a huge deal.
DT served me well for years but has failed me in a severe and unrecoverable way and I am leaving it now.
