SNAP Error - Failed to Open Image View

Hello helpers!

I downloaded Sentinel-1 Level 1 GRD Images. I opened them on SNAP and tried to open the bands by clicking on them (amplitude/intensity). After some time of trying to load the image, the application shows this error:

SNAP Error
Failed to open image view.
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java

Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this error?

Thank you so much!

OutOfMemoryError means that your computer cannot allocate enough RAM to display the image.

8 GB are the minimum requirement to work with Sentinel data. It is also helpful to store the image at a suitable location (SSD if possible, no external devices, such as USB or network drives)

Make sure to reproduce the error, scroll till the end of the messages.log file and paste if you see something starting with ERROR.
