Default Bowtie mapping problem

I am trying to use Bowtie to map about 300,000 reads to my reference. I use the command: bowtie -a -v 0 -p 10 -t INDEX_FILE -f READS_FILE.fasta > RESULT_FILE --un unmapped.txt.

The command couldn't be finished, an error showed up "You Mac OSX startup disk has no more space available for application memory". The Bowtie process took about 30 GB memory and froze.

I checked my startup disk (Macintosh HD). It still has about 1 Tb space available. I don't know what's going on.

Hope somebody here can help me. Thanks in advance.
