Proc folder eating up my space on Android 10.1 Galaxy S2

I have a Galaxy S2 with cyanogenmod 10.1 installed.
The phone has 2GB internal memory, 12GB internal SD, and a 32GB external sd card.
The phone is not letting me update applications because storage space is not enough, If I go to storage, I can see I have 206MB free, but doing the math´s I have more free space, I only have 600MB on apps + 206MB free space = that´s 800MB, I still have at least 800MB or more free….
Going through the files with File Manager, I can see that on root file, there´s a folder called PROC, I think this folder is a temporally folder  created for memory usage, if I click on details, the folder size is 900MB, with a lot of files, and all the files are 0KB….. is there a way to lower the total amount of MB used by this folder???...
What can I do?
Thank you,

I downloaded the RAM booster App..
It´s telling me it´s using 600mb out of 790mb..
adding all the apps memory, just add´s me 415mb.

No, same problem, the problem seems to be that the phone separates 700MB of RAM, no matter how much it needs, that 700MB won´t be available, that´s right?, and there´s no way of telling not to use that much right?

The only solution was to do a factory reset and install everything again...
