Issue ID




"A meta data file (.meta) exists but its folder can't be found" warning thrown on 2D Sprite package import

Package: 2D Sprite


Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a 2D project or import 2D Sprite package from Package Manager window
2. Observe console (Console "Clear flags" should be disabled, otherwise the warning will be removed on recompile)

Expected result: No warnings thrown on 2D Sprite package import
Actual result: One or multiple warnings appear in console during import:
A meta data file (.meta) exists but its folder 'Packages/com.unity.2d.sprite/Editor/Obsolete' can't be found, and has been created. Empty directories cannot be stored in version control, so it's assumed that the meta data file is for an empty directory in version control. When moving or deleting folders outside of Unity, please ensure that the corresponding .meta file is moved or deleted along with it.

Reproduced with: 2022.2.0a9
Didn't reproduce with: 2022.2.0a8, 2022.1.0b15, 2021.2.19f1, 2020.3.33f1, 2019.4.37f1

    I'm also having this issue but when I debug my game, Unity crashes. I went back to use Unity 2020.3.33f1. It doesn't give me any issues with this warning or crashes.
