I recently lost access to my workspace developed over a long time.  When I
try to load this work space (called Casmalia.Rdata) or double click on it
to open it in R, I see  a popup which says (Embedded image moved to file:
And under this, the last line in the console commands is:   "Bad restore
file magic number.  (File may be corrupted) - no data loaded."

The Casmalia.Rdata file looks the right size.  But is apparently missing a
magic number.  Can this file be fixed in an editor such as Textpad so that
it can be restored?
