I have a macbook pro running osx 10.9.3 with 8 GB of RAM
I use an app which monitors my RAM and displays it in the menu bar, and after copying several large files onto my mac from an external drive (totaling almost 5 GB), I only have anywhere from 250 mb to 400 mb of available RAM (the number fluctuates), usually this number is at least 3.5 GB. When I open the app, it tells me that most of the RAM (5.66 GB) is allocated to the file cache.
Is there any way I can get my RAM back without having to restart my computer? I would prefer if this could be done using an applescript file so I can easily run it in the future if I need to, but it's not necessary.
