comment Show the encryption method used on a zip file in WinZip 9.0
The format of a ZIP file is published by PKWARE, e.g. at http://www.pkware.com/documents/casestudies/APPNOTE.TXT and this document gives the location and content of the encryption header(s).

comment disable thumbnail creating or move thumbnail directory with Fedora
Probably not if you never use nautilus (e.g. folder viewer). There is a range of issues about whether any fix should be to not have any thumbnails (the 'map to null' class of solution), not allow more thumbnails (the chmod class of solutions), prevent formation via gconf, select thumbnail creation per app, or discard thumbnails at the end of a session. This was discussed in detail in relation to eog in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/eog/+bug/255030 and it may be helpful to read that discussion and review the patch.

comment disable thumbnail creating or move thumbnail directory with Fedora
Presumably the images are remote (if they are local you could create more home directory space by moving some to external storage) -- have you set Nautilus to only use thumbnails for local folders and only for small files?

comment Any faster scp or rsync?
Is the whole path from the local machine to the remote machine 100Mb/s? A network path cannot transfer data between two points faster than it can across the slowest link in the path. If you actually have a 100Mb/s path between them then are they close enough that you could just put the file on a USB stick and walk it to its destination?
