Thank you Ivan and Duncan for your help.

I understand your point Duncan, but the thing is that I do have an issue 
Is it then due to RStudio or even Windows? If it is, I can forget about 
a solution on that end, so I would focus on what I can do, and this Git 
setting seems to be the best place to start.

Or am I missing something (I am still a newbie on these things...)?
