Uploading large datasets

Hello,
I am new to using R and I am working on project that requires me to upload multiple large datasets. They are .csv files and I am read_csv to upload them. But after I upload several of them the system crashes. Any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you are using a paid RStudio Cloud account simply increase the maximum RAM memory available for your project, if not, I'm afraid you are limited to 1GB of RAM memory so you might want to work in another system with more memory.

I had the same issues while working on my data analytics capstone project, and the answer was to download the desktop version of R, RStudio and Rtools.
The limitations aren't the same as Rstudio's Cloud, making it possible for you do proceed with your work.
