Can you provide some further detail on how the string is created? I'm
not familiar with Rpad, but I wonder if the issue isn't at that level.
Note that if you create a string with single '\', R eats them up and
at that point there is nothing you can do:
s <- "x\y\z"
Do you have a way of printing your path string?
