That's a pretty standard GPT partition layout. Looks fine to me.

comment Is there a way to stop the optimization process behind “Optimizing Your Mac”?
There is one thing you can do (and it's what I do). Completely disable spotlight. It's useless (IMHO) anyways.

The OP knows that, (s)he has an image of exactly that in the OP!

comment Using a keyword that contains a space in a Spotlight search?
I would assume the OP is specifically trying to do this without using the mouse, which your answer requires. Furthermore, your answer is literally what the OP has already described.

comment How to stop iTunes from automatically downloading purchased TV shows?
I'd say add a step between 7 and 8 that involves checking the output of pwd.

@mkelley33 - Probably not, but I think you can then clean those up through itunes. Basically, I'm just a little worried because someone commented (in a now deleted answer) saying they tried to follow your directions, made a mistake somewhere, and accidentally deleted the entire contents of their home directory. I'd assume they managed to do something stupid in the cd command, and basically ran rm -rf ~/. rm does not use the trash can. It does immediate, nearly irreversible deletes.

A much better solution, assuming the plist files are in ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Downloads directly (not a sub directory) would be to do: rm ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Downloads/*plist, which will just delete any plist files in the Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Downloads directory

Please, please, please, PLEASE, change the terminal command to cd ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Downloads. This specifies an absolute directory path, and will handle cases where the user has munged something up.
