comment how can I delete a partition (coreStorage logical volume?) from the Terminal?
This basically worked, things look great – apart from the fact that both of my Recover HDs are now gone. How big a problem is that? Why did that happen? Shall I fix this somehow? How? Thanks again!

comment how can I delete a partition (coreStorage logical volume?) from the Terminal?
This is a great answer. I am a bit hesitant to try it (or to buy a large external HDD and spend a day backing up just to try this — my online backup is on Amazon AWS with Arq, but not the entire disk). But I will see what I can do and accept your answer, or maybe even sooner if others say it solved the same problem for them. Thanks!

@Chrisii This was very, very helpful, yet I am still a bit uncertain how I could erase my OS X Test partition. I do not see my main partition in the output otherwise (I booted into Mavericks from the larger, main partition). What shall I do? Thanks! (It is lame, but I will the out put across multiple ensiung comments. Thanks for bearing with me.

Thanks again, I hope "IMAP-******@imap.gmail.com" was the only folder to delete, and nothing from "MailBoxes" or "MailData."

Thanks — and if I do? (Not that important though, maybe I should remove all from Mail, then.)

comment How to selectively route traffic for one specified IP adddress through the VPN tunnel (not all traffic)?
Shame I cannot comment for some reason --- this is not an answer but a follow-up. So before deleting it, please see my question here: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/96071/… I would like to route my VM traffic (or just some specific public IPs) over my PPTP VPN, but (maybe because my settings are not manual) I cannot figure out the specifics. Thanks!

comment troubleshoot applescripted typing missing shift key and numerics in windows xp under parallels 8?
Matt, thanks a lot again. Please let me know if you figured something out since. E.g. on Mavericks? Or that's a Parallels-specific problem? Still not fixed in more recent betas?
