Illustrator cannot save in PDF

I have a complex artwork and suddenly I cannot export it to pdf. It saves until about 80%, then it hangs and I have to force quit the app.

I also had to deactivate the 'Create Compatible PDF File' as it does not allow me to save the file that way. Again it goes to 93% then stops for an unexpected error.

I can, however, save the illustrator file, outline, and print.

I tried to save the file with all fonts outlined (I'm using the latest Suitcase Fusion) but no difference.

I'm very worried about this as I have 3 alterations to this file and I would rather not have to do it from scratch. Can you please help?

How much RAM do you have? Sounds like that's the choke point.
