Providing the following information will be helpful in diagnosing the source of your issues.

### Steps to reproduce the problem

### Describe the problem in detail

### Describe the behavior you expected

<!-- Depending on the problem, the following may also be helpful -->

1. The output of `sessionInfo()` 
2. The R code in question
3. A diagnostics report; see

### System details

RStudio Edition: (Desktop or Server)
RStudio Version: 
OS Version: 
R Version: 

In terms of helping you with the information you provided, the error message unable to restore saved data in C:/Users/Isrum/Documents/research/data/demog.RData suggest R is having trouble with that file. If you open a RStudio from a different projuct, can you open demog.RData successfully?



  1. I am using R desktop edition Version 3.5. OS Windows 10
  2. The Workspace I am trying to load is in my Documents and I am trying to explore this data file.Thus I expected it to open
    3.In saying different product you mean Server edition?


I am a little confused, are you using the RStudio IDE or just R? (Differentiating R from RStudio)


In above error I was using R ,tried loading same in RStudio IDE and had an "error in connection"


I'm struggling to find a past example of an "error in connection" message in relation to RStudio IDE Desktop.

I would suggest working through this troubleshooting guide:

Failing that, the "Error information" at the bottom of the page could be handy to diagnose the issue.
