I had a problem with bigrquery that I couldn’t figure out.
* my laptop crashed (happens sometimes) * this corrupted (I think) the .httr-oauth file in my folder * the error I received was extremely not helpful:
Error in readRDS(cache_path) : ReadItem: unknown type 97, perhaps written by later version of R
Solution: delete the .httr-oath token
What I instead did:
- remove the rstudio files
- check if there were similar issues with bigrquery (nope)
- find if there was a ~/.Rdata file (There wasn’t)
- remove hidden rstudio project files
- remove .RProject file
I could not find a simple answer online so I’m recording this for the future.
