I created a vault at the root of an external USB hard drive. Made a password and saved the recovery key. That seemed fine, it unlocked and the vault opened.
I moved my files from that USB hard drive into the new vault, checked that they were in there and then locked the vault.
Cryptomator now tells me “Cryptomator could not find a vault at this path”. I cannot find the 3 files that are normally placed in the vault, IMPORTANT.rtf, masterkey.cryptomator and masterkey.cryptomator.####.bkup
It’s like those files were never created. I have no masterkeyfile.
I’ve repeated the entire process with a test vault in the same location and it seems to have worked fine.
I’m guessing there’s no hope here, without the masterkey file, the files are forever lost to the aether?
Thanks for any help.
