I need to write  program to run some results from an experiment. i have the
results saved in 2 different files, named "tuesday" and "wednesday" (both
located within the same file). when i wrote the program for "tuesday" i had
no problem running it, but when i changed the work directory to wednesday i
got the "cannot change working directory" message. I don't understand what's
different between the two. 

my first code was: 

setwd("/Users/user/Desktop/Recorded\ results/tuesday") 

and my second code is: 

setwd("/Users/user/Desktop/Recorded\ results/wednesday") 

and i copied the exact location from the terminal, so i can't have typos (i
am using a mac, if that makes any difference). 

any suggestions? i will be grateful for any insight.
