R taking a lot time in reading large dataset

Hi all

I am trying to read large dataset that is about 10-11 GB. R has taken couple of hours?
I have 64 GB RAM in my PC. Does anyone how to speed the process?


What format is the the file on? What function/package are you using to read the file? Have you check your RAM is not currently full? Have in mind that a data set takes much more space once loaded into RAM.

Thank you. The data is dat format and I am using library haven.
