I uninstalled onedrive, I eliminated all the folders and then reinstalled R
and RStudio... but it is RStudio the one creating a folder
called C:\Users\Ana\OneDrive - Universidad Complutense de Madrid

This is what I obtained with the debugging

Error in setwd(dir) : no es posible cambiar el directorio de trabajo
Enter a frame number, or 0 to exit
