I am using Rstudio for a class and attempted to delete existing folders within the program. I had various projects that showed up as files in Rstudio, and tried deleting them because I figured they had nothing to do with my project. However, when I did so, they deleted from my desktop and are no where to be found in my trash. I am very confused why deleting folders in Rstudio would transfer over to the entire disk.
Please help as I had a lot of important things on my desktop that have accumulated over the years!!
