[R] Workspace Question.

The objects from an R session are saved in the RWorking directory of the 
session.  The answer to your question will depend on whether you started 
the different versions of R using shortcuts located in different folders 
or the same folder.  The objects should not be automatically deleted so 
I would think that unless you deleted them yourself, you are dealing 
with a situation where you are not starting the previous version of R 
with the same working directory as before.

Sorry this is only general advice, but there is not enough detail to say
