I have a question about the error: vector memory exhausted (limit reached?). I have the R-studio version 4.0.3 (2020-10-10). 
I have a MacBook Air (13-inch, 2017). I am trying to open a dataset file ‘data_dta’ through the import dataset ‘file from stata’ button. 
I already did this with other datasets, and this works fine. Now, I want to work with a bigger dataset of 4.08 GB. When I try to open the dataset, I get this error: vector memory exhausted (limit reached?). 
What can I do about this? I still have 25 GB available on my laptop. 

Thank you very much
