RSTudio/tidyr Crashing Windows 10
I'm reshaping some data using RStudio 1.2.5019 (and R 3.6.0) on a Windows 10 computer, using mostly tidyr. I'm running into a very strange issue that I can't seem to find anywhere. I had originally used separate() three times to split three columns into 12 columns each, connected by pipes, and it took a little time but it worked just fine. I realized I didn't need one of the separates, so I took that one out, and that's when I ran into this issue (which persists when I try to run it with just one separate too).
When I try to run this section of code, I've had a couple of different results:
- RStudio appears to crash, and any open tabs in Chrome also close spontaneously. I receive this error: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc00012d). RStudio appears to stay open, but is just a blank white screen with the menu bar.
- RStudio appears to crash, both of my screens go to black (laptop and monitor) and then return to normal. No error message, and RStudio uses 99% of my memory for about a minute even though it appears closed.
- RStudio appear to crash, both of my screens go to black. No error message, and I can move my mouse but the computer is otherwise non-responsive and I have to force reboot using the power button.
- RStudio crashed and displays the "RStudio encountered a fatal error" message. Existing Chrome tabs that were already loaded/not actively retrieving content change to the "something went wrong" page.
What I've tried so far:
Clearing the environment and re-running the code
Restarting my laptop
Deleting RStudio-Desktop from AppData > Local and RStudio from AppData > Roaming
I'm totally stumped - the data set isn't big enough for it to be a RAM issue (<1k rows, 30 cols max), and there aren't really any specific error messages to go off of. Any ideas as to what is happening here? Thanks in advance!
