I need to indicate a right file path to read a
.csv file into R on OS X, but how can I find where the file is stored? Looking at Excel files, the file path starts at
users/…, but there is no indication of a disk or something.
There's no disk letter in OS X unlike Windows.
The mount point for disks is usually /Volumes. For example, files on a flash drive with the name
FLASHDRIVE will be located in
The startup disk is the root,
/. Therefore, the Users folder is
/Users. No drive letter is prepended to this.
You can right click the file and "Get Info". The path is written right there. Alternatively you could e.g. drag the file into a terminal window to see the path..
