What you are seeing is 100% normal

There is normally no need or benefit in flushing cached memory. It is normal and desirable to have a high value for cached memory. As shown in Task Memory this memory is available. Free memory is evil and should be at the lowest possible value, zero being optimal. All modern operating systems were designed to operate this way.

✔ Best Answer
Many people think that they are better at memory management than the Microsoft engineers who designed Windows. In almost all cases they are mistaken.

Leave well enough alone and let Windows manage its memory the way it know how to unless you have firm evidence of performance problems because of some error. Then you need to use tried and trusted techniques to locate and eliminate the error. Flushing cached memory is a good way of degrading performance significantly and so is not really a good idea.
