[R] RData file

When I tied to reload the data I got the following error message

load("C:\\My Documents\\dataR.RData")
Error in load("C:\\My Documents\\dataR.RData") :
        restore file corrupted -- no data loaded

I think the data has all been destroyed what would have caused this, is it
something to do with the amount of memory in use ?
