comment OS X 10.5.8 - can I upgrade the OS?
I wouldn't necessarily agree with @Tetsujin. I run Yosemite on my late 2010 MacBook Air, which is considerably less powerful than your iMac (same RAM but only a 1.6GHz CPU), and it runs perfectly. Admittedly it has an SSD rather than a hard disk, and that makes a big difference.

comment On Mac OSX Yosemite why does my computer download 500MB every day whether I am using it or not?
@Tyson It can't be the Photos app, because this is 10.10.1 and Photos was introduced in 10.10.3.

comment Formatting & partition problem
Are you sure your USB drive is a genuine Kingston product? There are many counterfeit flash storage devices with false brand names that don't work properly. Has it ever worked for you, and have you been able to fill it with data and then retrieve the data?

@fbrundu You should leave the question here, so that the next person who does the same thing can find it, and the answer.

comment How to solve Yosemite massive memory leak?
@MateuszSzlosek I wrote it as an answer, but I changed it to a comment since it asks for more data. If the data support it, I'll make it an answer.

comment How to solve Yosemite massive memory leak?
OS X (and all modern operating systems) is designed to use all of the memory that's available, for file caches if it has no better use for it. That's not a problem, since memory used for file caches is still available for applications to use. In Activity Monitor, what are the values for App Memory, File Cache, Wired Memory and Compressed?

comment How can I merge two Apple Mail databases?
Why not just move all the email folders from On My Mac back to the IMAP server, on both machines, and then it will all be on IMAP.
