When trying to refresh data : "There's Not Enough Memory To Complete This Operation"

Hi all, 


I have a dashboard on power bi desktop that is based on 12 tables - the largest one is 15 columns and 50.000 rows - and I since a few days I can't refresh the data, it returnrs the "There's Not Enough Memory To Complete This Operation" error. 

I tried to refresh one table at a time, but it doesn't work neither. 


I guess there's some operation during the refresh that takes a lot of memory, but I don't know how to detect which operation costs so much memory. Any ideas? 


Thanks in advance!
