It sounds like you've already got things sorted, so feel free not to
follow up on this, but this is more Terminal magic.

Open a terminal and you'll already be in ~, so then just type

open .rstudio-desktop

to open a new Finder window in a "hidden" folder where RStudio saves
its configuration files and whatnot. Your scripts are likely in there

I'd also recommend you do look into Dropbox, which will back up your
files instantly whenever you save a change, from anywhere in the world
as long as you have an internet connection.
