[R] Limit in Directory Hierarchy?

A quick question - is there a limit to the number of levels one can go down when setting the directory in R studio?
I ask because I have been trying to set the directory to a folder 8 levels down which R studio won't allow, and when I try to set the directory through Session/Set Working Directory, it won't even show the lowest level folder:

setwd("C:/Users/supermollusc/Desktop/151017 Shellfish/Mussel Months/Mussel Mar 18/0318.data")

but it's quite happy to set the directory at 7 levels

setwd("C:/Users/supermollusc/Desktop/151017 Shellfish/Mussel Months/Mussel Mar 18")

I can't see why it won't do this if there isn't a hierarchy level limit but I can't find reference to one on the net
