Hi R Studio fans,
Looking for some advice on a set-up I have between home and the office. I have R installed on a network drive which allows me in theory to use it between a home laptop and an office PC. My method is that I have a local installation of R on the laptop which I then give a path to the network drive. This has worked ok in the past, but I have an issue where after I specify the path to the network drive library and then display the library paths via:
.libPaths(c(.libPaths(), "M:/R/win-library/3.6")) .libPaths()
I get a very long hang (5-10 minutes) after executing the 2nd line despite it surely being a simple command. This extends to loading Bioconductor (a suite of packages within the network drive) which takes a similar unworkable amount of time. I'm wondering whether it would be related to this previous thread on issues with Rstudio with R installed on network drives though no solutions to improve speed seem to be given here:
I have a good quality internet connection but am going through a VPN to get to the drive. Would appreciate any advice to diagnose what is happening here.
