Hi

AFAIK sometimes this can happen if your .Rdata was saved when some packages had been in action. But in that case you should have your message extended with someting like:

"cannot load package ...." or similar.

It helped me when I started plain R session invoked necessary packages and opened a particular workspace. However if your .Rdata is corrupted I do not know about any procedure how to restore it. Therefore it is recommended to save copies of your data in other formats (txt, csv, ...) and I usually save history periodically to separate files so I can go back to what I have done before.
