comment Preventing Icon Previews on Network Volumes
It's not a real answer to your question - I'm actually pretty sure you can't have it both ways - but you can work around it by connecting to your network share using SMB. No icon preview support there, IIRC.

comment I don't have administrator account on my mac
nelson, I suggest improving your answer by adding the actual dscl commands that he would need to use. Good response but it could be better. I had a hell of a time recently myself trying to figure it out, a good answer on this site would have helped immensely.

comment Launchd starts event 40 seconds later?
This isn't a strong area for me but if there's a problem in your plist configuration file, an easier way of creating it would be to use LaunchControl [soma-zone.com/LaunchControl/] - see also launchd.info.

comment Determine if file or directory is encrypted?
@jww and, if they're using FileVault 1 (older than OS X Lion), then it's only the home folder that's encrypted. The boot volume is "normal" with a sparsebundle for the users' home. That gets unpacked on boot, so that when the user enters their password the sparsebundle opens and they have access to their files.

comment Determine if file or directory is encrypted?
@jww well, if the system is using OS X Lion or greater, and FileVault is enabled, the entire boot volume will be encrypted. From terminal: $ diskutil info /dev/disk1 (for me that's my boot volume -- use diskutil list to see your volumes) shows lots of information about it. At the bottom, you'll see info about whether it's a Core Storage Logical Volume, and whether that volume is encrypted.
