I have a university laptop that has an online file store, which R keeps trying to save to instead of the C drive. Running it off the file store makes it incredibily slow. I'm getting an error message when trying to install a cdf package that I've made.
I'm setting the file location to my c drive:
 "C:/Users/mal1u17/Documents/RStudio" "C:/Program Files/R/R-3.6.2/library"
I'm downloading the cdf file onto my c drive, gunzip and making a cdf package:
download.file("https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/download/?acc=GPL23985&format=file&file=GPL23985_ADXECv1a520743.cdf.gz", detfile = "C:/Users/mal1u17/Documents/RStudio", "ADXECv1a520743.cdf.gz")
make.cdf.package("ADXECv1a520743.cdf", species = "Homo sapiens", unlink = TRUE, package.path = "C:/Users/mal1u17/Documents/RStudio")
But when I try to install the package I get the following error:
install.packages("adxecv1a520743cdf", lib= "C:/Users/mal1u17/Documents/RStudio", repos = NULL, type = "source")
CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory.
UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.
Warning: invalid package 'adxecv1a520743cdf'
Error: ERROR: no packages specified
Warning in install.packages :
installation of package ‘adxecv1a520743cdf’ had non-zero exit status
I've been going round in circles with this for hours and would very much appreciate any help!
