Unable to establish connection with R session- Windows 10

Hi all,

I changed my laptop and installed a new version of RStudio. Since then, I am having problems when I code, since every few minutes a window with the following message appears:
Save File
Unable to establish connection with R session

Moreover, when I try to run a chunk of code another error message appears:
Error: Unable to establish connection with R session
I have to try to run it three or more times to run the code.

Here you are the sessionInfo()
R version 3.6.1 (2019-07-05)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)

I also tried to reinstall RStudio and to reset the Rstudio's state. However, the problem persists.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance for your help,


Is your working directory being synchronized with a cloud storage service? I have experienced this issue in the past with Dropbox synchronization.

You might also experience this if you're working within projects in your OneDrive folder, and you've enabled Files On-Demand (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/save-disk-space-with-onedrive-files-on-demand-for-windows-10-0e6860d3-d9f3-4971-b321-7092438fb38e).
