Navigate to C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings
and delete this file Adobe Photoshop CS6 Prefs.psp
Upon restarting photoshop it will create this file again for you.
I did a quick test and see the memory usage rising again. What was this supposed to do?

I am not sure about being able to clear the cache of the app without closing it however, you can always try to allocate more ram to photoshop.
This might sound odd, but I don't think that will help. I already had it a little over 5GBs but it didn't care and sucked up the rest, all 7.6GB and my computer froze. I'm no memory expert but I think that effects the Private memory.
I think Photoshop isn't getting rid of the images in the memory. Some searching shows that it's designed like this on purpose, and that it should realize full memory and compensate, but it isn't.

Assuming your system is configured correctly for pro image editing (CS6 not installed on the main OS drive but on a secondary)
PS should not be using so much memory off a single automated script.
Go to "Preferences > Performance" and make sure your main HDD is not being used as a scratch disk, but only your secondary.
From there allocate about 75% of your total Ram.
No need to delete any files
Now, if PS is installed on your main HDD alongside the OS, plus this being the same one
the files are being read and saved onto .... well .... there's your problem
PS installed on Maindrive
Scratch on secondary drive that also contains the files I am processing
