For reasons of license and computational hardware resource optimization, we have restricted RNA-seq analysis in our CLC Gx USC-logo licenses if the total size of the dataset exceeds 20 GB (.fastq.gz files).  Instead, you are strongly encouraged to take advantage of a powerful and speedy end-to-end solution in Partek Flow.
