[R] save() with 64 bit and 32 bit R

i have been using a 64 bit desktop machine to process a whole lot of
data which i have then subsequently used save() to store. i am now
wanting to use this data on my laptop machine, which is a 32 bit
install. i suppose that i should not be surprised that the 64 bit data
files do not open on my 32 bit machine! does anyone have a smart idea as
to how these data can be reformatted for 32 bits? unfortunately the data
processing that i did on the 64 bit machine took just under 20 days to
complete, so i am not very keen to just throw away this data and begin
again on the 32 bit machine.

sorry, in retrospect this all seems rather idiotic, but i assumed that
the data stored by save() would be compatible between 64 bit and 32 bit
(there is no warning in the manual).
