I am facing a strange behaviour. I have a folder created for LogSeq which ist called … LogSeq. This folder is in pcloud. As soon I start LogSeq, a folder is being created in the root folder of pcloud called markdown files.
In this flder I can see the following content:
1 folder: logseq
2 Files: config.edn, pages-metadata.edn
As soon I delete this folder, it is being created again automatically.
In the logseq folder itself (pcloud root directory), there is only
I have no idea where my md files are being stored
Is there anywhere a description how the folder structure of LogSeq ist being setup?
Logseq folder structure is the following
The logseq folder stores logseq configurations. The pages folder is where your pages will be stored. The journals folder → journals. The assets folder is created and used for storing assets such as images.
Thanks for the explanation!
I was shifting around like a stupid beginner with the folders and now LogSeq does not find the folder with the journals and the files. How can I tell LogSeq which folder it should open?
If the folders journals and/or pages doesn’t exist in the directory where you opened the graph, logseq will create them. You can not specify a different folder structure in logseq.
Test it by creating a new empty folder, then open it in logseq and create a test note.
This is. where I struggle: I have moved my content from a cloud folder to another cloudfolder and now I want to tell LogSeq where it should search for the files, but I cannot find any option in LogSeq to say: Open file …
Or do I just don´t find the function to open an existing fault?

Thanks for your help. Yesterday I found out by chance that what I expected to see as “Open folder” or “create a new folder” is called “Graph” in LogSeq. I do not get the logic why this is called graph, but now that I know it, everything is okay. There was no strange behaviour in LogSeq, there was only a lack of knowledge: you know: P.I.C.N.I.C. = Problem In Chair Not In Computer

No worries glad I could help. Checkout the documentation page for more information
- a discrete collection of notes and other content. Logseq repositories contain individual files, a database that relates those files.
- produced by:
- Logseq graphs are created by connecting Logseq with an existing folder or online repository.
On Obsidian they are even called “vaults”. Also “graphs” in Logseq is not really intuitive but the reasoning is that the pages in the same folder/graph are linked together to form a graph and pages from different folders/graphs are not linked.
