RStudio Desktop - Networked drive, laggy response




Experiencing the same issue. Networked drive, laggy response.
Is this fixed? Or is there a work around?

Rstudio: 1.1.447
R version 3.5.0 (2018-04-23)

File access slowdown when working in project on remote disk
RStudio Desktop slow and laggy when project is on a network drive

Do you have any better luck with the preview release of RStudio?


Will ask our IT to update.


For what it's worth, we offer portable, standalone installations of RStudio for the preview release. E.g. for Windows:

You might try unzipping that to some place where you have read / write permissions and running that if you wanted to quickly test locally.


Hi Kevin, thanks will try this later today
