@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.

comment In the light of the FREAK TLS vulnerability, how may I disable insecure cipher suites manually in Safari?
As far as I know it can't be done -- you'll have to wait for Apple's patch, and maybe use Firefox or Chrome until it's available if you're on a public network.

comment Poor sluggish performance after upgrading to Yosemite
You're not as short of memory as you think you are. The "File Cache" is memory that's being used to cache files simply because it's not needed for anything else, and is available for applications to use. It counts as free memory.

comment How do you remove Safari 7.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.7.5
Do you want to have no Safari at all, or a different version? If the latter, which version do you want?

comment Running Xcode 6 on 2009 iMac
Right, I was afraid of that. Ignore it. All modern operating systems use all the memory all the time -- anything that's not used for anything important is used for buffers and caches to speed up IO. Having said that, 2GB is not a lot, and you probably are short of memory.

What exactly do you mean when you say the RAM is using 1.99GB? What tool are you using, and exactly how does it describe the usage?
