Cannot check box on Github pane in RStudio

Hello, I am having an issue similar to that reported by https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/200656917-Cannot-tick-the-stage-checkbox-of-modified-files-in-the-git-pane.

RStudio and Github have been working fine in the past on my Windows machine. However, suddenly the Git pane for my project seems very slow and ultimately becomes unresponsive. I am unable to check the boxes to commit / push my files to Github. I'm experiencing these problems on a Windows machine, but the same process works fine on my Mac laptop.

Has anyone encountered a similar issue before?

Thank you.

Andy

Hi @agrogan! Welcome!

Mysterious slowness issues can be very frustrating, and unfortunately also can be system-specific and difficult to debug :weary:. I’m afraid I don’t know what might be wrong, but here are a few things to try based on past discussions here and elsewhere:

If none of that is getting you anywhere, you might try working through some of the articles in the RStudio Desktop Troubleshooting Guide.

Thanks! That's actually super-helpful.

The Github repo lives on a cloud folder (box.com) that is synced to my various computers, so that may be the issue. If the problem re-emerges, I will experiment with moving the repo to my local machine.

I also read on an R forum somewhere (can't find the link now) that this is a known issue that sometimes appears and then mysteriously goes away.

After rebooting my machine several times, the issue went away, so I'll wait to see if it re-appears and try some of the suggested solutions.

Much appreciated.
