I have 33GB POD file with 4 billion points. There is a lot of noise around the scanned area which I wanted to remove using Pointools. I created a new project and attached the POD file. Took me a while to delete all the unwanted points and now I am trying to export it to a new POD file. Unfortunately every time I try this the program crashes during "Writing Data to POD File" stage. When Pointools is gathering data for POD files it starts filling RAM until it reaches about 28GB (the rest of 32GB is used by OS and other programs). It hangs for several minutes and the status changes to "Writing Data to POD File". From this moment Pointools starts releasing some RAM but after a few minutes it crashes with a standard Windows error message "Bentley Pointools has stopped working". Before the crash C drive usage jumps to 100%.

Screenshot taken a few moments before crash.
My PC is HP ZBook 17 G5
I have about 500GB free space on C drive and 700GB on D drive (where I try to save the new POD file).
Pointools version 10.01.00.01
After two first crashes I moved caching location to D drive (SSD) and changed max cache size to 50Gb but Pointools does not use more than 130MB.
Any idea how to fix it?
