CreateSequenceDictionary OutOfMemoryError

I'm running CreateSequenceDictionary on a Windows 10 machine with 4 gigabytes of ram and more than 50 gigabytes of free disk space, while my human dna reference file is nearly 3 gigabytes. The same problem does not appear whenever I use a very small fasta file made for demonstration purposes and the dict is normally created. Here's the error I keep getting

Runtime.totalMemory()=259522560
To get help, see http://picard.sourceforge.net/index.shtml#GettingHelp
