comment Should I verify copied files and with which software?
I see. Here are the options above that don't require a command line: (1) stuffe's answer of checking total file size, (2) the linked QA in option 1 shows you how to use FileMerge, a graphical tool for checking differences between folders.

Why not just tell the launchd job manager to not start BezelUIServer in the first place? See my answer below.

There is indeed a built-in method for doing so. See my answer below.

comment Stop Image Capture from opening when a new device is connected
It's great that you've had no problems so far. However, this doesn't mean that most users won't run into problems with this solution in the future, especially when they might need Image Capture in the future. If you really want to offer this solution, I would recommend something reversible, like sudo mv '/Applications/Image Capture.app' '/Applications/Image Capture.app.disabled' or sudo chmod a-x '/Applications/Image Capture.app/Contents/MacOS/Image Capture'.

comment How to downgrade software using terminal?
It depends on how you installed it in the first place. A naive solution would be to uninstall, then install the older version.

comment how can I move multiple files at once?
@nuc I think the reason is because they want "cut" to mean only "copy and delete", which is how cutting works in a text editor. However, when you deal with files, "cut" doesn't actually delete anything until you paste (and it doesn't really delete it either, it just moves it).

comment How to open the finder as root
sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/MacOS/Finder has always worked for me, and I use Dropbox too (and I don't need to stop any daemons). It's probably an issue with your installation of Dropbox or some other third-party app.

comment What is “secd” process on OSX (Mavericks, Yosemite)
@Mah A typical reason daemons take a lot of memory is because they store the data they work (in this case, the keychain) in memory to improve speed. The assumption here is that the OS will be able to quickly swap the memory to disk if memory is needed for more urgent things, but it looks like that assumption is not valid here. Do you a lot of keychain items?
