By default, files are saved as csv files to a '_save_df' subdirectory relative to the working directory and include a time stamp in the file name using utils::write.csv. The default folder can be changed with the folder argument. Inclusion of a time stamp in the file name enables saving the same object at multiple steps through an R script, but can be turned off with the timeStamp argument.
