[R] Pausing R

I’m currently running a script that takes several days to complete, and 
have therefore chosen to start two instances of R, each doing half the 
work (since I have a two-processor machine). The problem is that this 
renders my computer worthless to do other work on. So - is it possible 
to pause one of the running R instances to do other things for a while, 
and then starting it again without losing anything?

TL;DR I want to know if it is possible to pause a running script.
