    I'm having an issue with SQL Search 2.3 running on SQL 2008 r2. Memory usage is about 85MB when I initially open SSMS. When I click on SQL Search and search a 95GB database, memory usage jumps to over 100MB. If I then attempt to search a 139GB database, memory usage will sometimes exceed 1.5GB and SSMS will crash with an unhandled exception message and I have to close SSMS to resolve the error. I also have tried this using SSMS 2014 (v 12.0.2000.8) and when searching a larger database (200GB+), memory usage exceeds 1.5GB and SSMS just crashes. Any insight into what is happening and how to resolve?
