Hi Rstudio Community,
So this seems like an ongoing issue with Rstudio and Dropbox. I run all my files including all of my Rprojects off of Dropbox. However, while running a session a consistent error pops up which is super annoying. The error message is the following Save File "The process cannot access the file because it's being used by another process". The error message is a result of Dropbox trying to consistently sync the .Rproj.user hidden folder which is actively being updated during a session.
Rstudio currently has this resolution on their website which consistently says it's up-to-date however this work around doesn't work and you can't comment on the actual issue, see here. Additional posts regarding this issue can be found here, here, and lastly here.
The only alternative is to stop syncing while the session is running however this poses multiple hindrances as I run different sessions on different computers and have results and figures being produced and want them synced to Dropbox as soon as they are created so I can access them on different computer e.g. see the results of the GAMMs that I'm running on a different computer then it was run on.
Anyone have any suggestions or ways around this?
