If I have posted this in the wrong place, then please let me know so I can change it.
I am very new to RStudio, unfortunatley having to use it to manipulate data for my masters dissertation (yes, I am being thrown in the deep end a little bit). I do know some of the basics, and luckily a scrpit has been supplied by the person who compiled the dataset that I am using.
Unfortunately I have fallen at the first hurdle: loading the data. An error message: 'Error: cannot allocate vector of size 500 kb'. From looking at other forum posts, I know that this is a result of RAM limitations. However, the 500kb value has me stumpted. The dataset isn't that large, only 1gb.
I've tried simple troubleshooting measures, such as the 'gc ()' command, trying to get as much RAM free in my laptop by closing other programmes etc. My laptop spects are:
Ryzen 5 3500U
8gb RAM (2gb hardware reserved).
Any ideas on how I can get this dataset to load?
Thanks in advance
