It works for me.  It would be helpful if you said what goes wrong, and
what OS you're running in.

I'm guessing that Subdir doesn't exist; R won't create it.  I don't
think there's a mkdir() function in R; you'll need to create the
subdir outside of R, or use system() to do it.  For example, in

system('command /c mkdir Subdir')

would do it.
