Problem Saving Workspace - No Error Message

Hi,
I have done some work which leaves me with several cell structures that I would like to save. I had hoped to save the workspace, but when I try to do this there is a problem - I go about saving the file like normal; however, it never saves. There is no error message so I am at a loss for what to do.
Thank you, -Kellie

Of course, it would be immenseley helpful, and might actually allow a solution to be put forward, if you describe in detail what is meant by "like normal" when you save your wok. A few lines of code should suffice...

Are you getting past 2 gigabytes? If you are, then you need to use the -v7.3 flag when you save.

@Matt
Sorry. 'Like Normal' is just me either:
(1) typing save(FileName)
(2) File->Save Workspace As
@Walter
How can I tell if I'm past 2 gigabytes? In the simplest case, I am just saving a single array of doubles, so I am doubtful it is that big.
Thank you both.

I have encountered a similar scenario:
'File->Save Workspace' and 'Ctrl+S' strategies repeatedly failed to yield a saved file (attempting for a 20 MB workspace), despite the anticipated sequence of events occurring smoothly for these actions without an error message.
In my case, however, typing save(FileName) did work.
