Try doing $HistoryLength=0; at the start of a session when working with large data sets. This will keep Mathematica from keeping copies on the In/Out stack which can quickly consume memory Another approach might be to load the package CleanSlate before importing large data sets. CleanSlate can restore things to the state they were in immediately after the package was loaded including clearing the In/Out stack.
