    If you are saying the System is using 430MB... It really depends on what it is doing?

    Looking at my System in the Device Monitor, it is currently at 247MB, but it has gone as high as 320MB in the six hours from when I did a reboot (had to reboot to get Wi-Fi to work).

    Is it peaking at 430MB? Does it say pretty constant at 430MB?
    Just watch it or look at the history and see if you can figure out what is making it go. And do a reboot....after you have looked at the history.

    Thanks for the reply, what do you mean by looking back to my history? As in what I do today with my phone?

    In Device Monitor, under the Memory tab, where the process are shown with their usage. If you click on a process name you can see that process history of usage - Battery, CPU, Memory, Mobile, Wi-Fi. By looking at that usage along with remembering what you might have been doing you can see what really pushes the usage up.

    Now if it is constant at 430MB....

    1) Reboot.
    2) Kill any background apps - headless apps
    3) Turn off things like Location Services
    4) Turn off radios - see how that affects usage.
    5) I would then look at different Accounts and if usage is still up there - look at deleting them one at a time
    6) If usage is still high, I'd re-install the OS if I were worried about it. Memory usage doesn't bother me as long is it isn't affecting operation.... now if there is a process draining the battery down....
