Inventor 2012 using too much memory?

Hi all here's whats going on. Each day I work on large assembly files and constanlty create detail sheets. After roughly an hour I can no longer check my files into vault and inventor hangs and eventually I have to end task and start again and repeat the whole process. I currently have vault and inventor 2012 installed on the same machine. Both are 64 bit versions with latest service packs. I also have one other guy in my office who connects to the vault periodically.


What I've noticed is that when inventor hangs I'm using around 6gb of memory and SQL is using around 2gb. I have 12gb total installed. My only work around so far is a reboot and to deal with the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience similar issues? Is there fix?


Computer Specs:

Dell Precision T7500

Intel Xeon X5660 @ 2.67GHz

12.0GB Memory

64 bit Windows 7 SP1


Thanks in advance...
