Could be the virtual memory (page file) depending on what your system specs are you can adjust the page file up or down or move it to another hard drive if you have one.

control panel>system and security > system

Advanced system settings tab and the first setting that you can change is the virtual memory, you open that and you will see a box with the hard drives listed so you select the 1 tb drive ,you want to have the C drive with no paging file and the 1 tb drive with a paging file that you set and it can be any amount , usually it's what the ram size is. Then make sure to set it and exit out and apply the settings.
