Does Rgui.exe use a different home directory from RStudio? Perhaps you
need not to reinstall RStudio (which deletes and recreates the program
files which aren't damaged) but to wipe the profile (the settings
somewhere under %APPDATA% or %LOCALAPPDATA%), but it pays to be extra
careful about these directories. People at
<https://community.rstudio.com/> may know more about that.

I'm afraid I don't know how to disable OneDrive on a Windows 10
installation. If your university has a Microsoft support contract, it
could be worth asking the Microsoft representative to fix OneDrive so
that temporary files would work on it and telling them the steps to
reproduce the problem.

What is the value of `dir` at this point? (What does print(dir) say?)
Can you open this directory in Windows Explorer?

If possible, could you please set your mailer to compose messages in
plain text instead of HTML? The plain text versions of your messages
that your mailer generates from the HTML messages are somewhat mangled:
