Illustrator taking a long time to save your file?

Is your Illustrator file taking a long time to save your file? Deselect the “Use Compression” option in the save dialog box.  In fact, deselect all the options, just because.

Straight from the help files:

Using compression increases the time required to save the document, so deselect this option if you’re experiencing very slow (8 to 15 minute) save times.

It made my file balloon from 18MB to 150MB, but 150MB is nothing this day and age.

    This took my file from 415MB to 40MB. Thank you! Maybe now my work computer can handle this file and I wont have to bring it home to work on!
