I am analysing biological data using R programming language and R studio.
File > Open File> Memory Stick > / Data > biological_data.txt
allows me to view data in a new window from an external hard drive into R Studio.
My computer is free of files and needs to stay that way because they take up too much space.
Is there a way that I can actually work on this data in RStudio directly from the hard drive?
So far the biological_data.txt file opens up in a new window in R studio, but I do not know how to use it and cannot simply copy and paste the data from the window into the console.
When I type:
in R, I get a beautiful output saying:
setwd(dir) is used to set the working directory to dir.
However, how can I find the path to the file on the memory stick (external hard drive)? This does not show up on the Terminal or in RStudio.
