[R] Memory allocation problem

Hello, I am runnning a program on R with a "big" number of simulations and I am getting the following error:

Error: no se puede ubicar un vector de tamaño 443.3 Mb

I don't understand why because when I check the memory status in my pc I get the following:

> memory.size()

[1] 676.3
> memory.size(T)

[1] 1124.69
> memory.limit()

[1] 4000

which should in theory allow to have a vector of size 443.Mb. I am running it on a pc on windows, 4gb RAM and intel core i7 processor. Does anybody know what might be going on?

Thank you

Felipe Parra
