Ring Buffer Capture Keeps Stopping

Hi... I'm running v3.0.0, and I am trying to create a "continuous" capture via a ring buffer. I configure it to create 20MB files, with a ring buffer of 200 files. This will end up consuming 2GB of disk storage, which is fine since the disk has over a TB free.

BUT... After the capture had filled only two 20MB files, and had begun filling the third, it simply stopped. I'm sorry I don't have the text of the error message displayed, and it would take some time to reproduce the condition in order to re-display it, but it was something simply to the effect of "Capturing Stopped".

Am I running out of memory? Should I be using smaller files, and a larger number of them?

Thx for any suggestions / explanations.
