You can try to divide and conquer.

 

Select half the pages in the export range say if it's 40 pages then export 1-20.

Then try 21-40

 

Whatever side it fails on - that's where the problem is occurring.

 

You can then try if it's in range 1-20 to export 1-10 

and so on  until you find the culprit page.

 

From here you'll have to find something like an image or something that might be corrupt, and resave it as a new name and relink it.

Try export again.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing the version of the OS & InDesign? Are you not able to export a specific file or all? Are you exporting the file on local drive or network? This information would help us assist you accordingly.
