I have a 6.3GB trace file of my machine copying a 10GB file to my nas, when I open the trace file wireshark crashes but not immediately, after a few mins.

I doubt the spec of my machine has anything to do with it, I have 32GB of RAM.

Just wondering if I am missing something, hoping someone has an idea ?

This is likely to be an out of memory issue. See the relevant page on the wiki.
