As I understand it you want to make an object stored in one workspace
(.RData) available to another session.  Ideas

1) You don't need to copy: you can just


which will add all the objects in the other .RData.

2) Fire up R in the first directory, and save the objects you want by

save(obj1, obj2, ..., "myobjs.rda")

then fire up R in the destination and use


You can even make this .RData not myobjs.rda if you don't have
one already.
