Hello All, 

I'm suffering from a corrupted .RData which I believe
arose from a shutdown while the session was in the
process of saving the image. I wonder if theres
something I can do to recover the data?
(the fatal error message is contained below)

Unfortunately, there was quite a bit of new
code prior to my latest backup, which I would
hate to rewrite.

kind regards
