FileMaker Memory / Garbage Collection

    Is there anything that FileMaker can do to clean up memory?  I have a MAC with i7 / 16Gig.  When running my FileMaker project, it will suck every bit of RAM available and occasionally crash the machine if I don't catch it.  I end up using Clean My Mac to recover the RAM until it does it again.


    It appears that garbage collection is not happening...  When using Clean My Mac, it can take me from 25 MB available to 7-8 Gig available.  This is a regular process I end up going through because memory cleanup is not happening.


    Our FM application is very large as you probably guessed...
