How do I prevent Euclidean Distance from depleting my entire SDD space during analysis?

Hi, I am trying to get the Euclidean Distance tool to work create a raster that measures the distance to New Zealands native forests.


The raster has a cell size of 8 and snaps to the NZ Digital Elevation Model and the analysis spans the entire country. 


For some reason, the Euclidean Distance tool gets stuck at 2% progress "Initialization Phase ...". It creates incredible amounts of data in the Temp folder and depletes my whole SDD space (280 GB!!!).


Is there any way to get the tool to work without depleting the whole disk space? Current environment settings:


Auto Commit 1000,

Compression type LZ77,

Tile size 128x128.


Using ArcGIS Pro 2.1.2

Intel Core i7 4770K
