comment Unable to copy large file onto ext2 usb stick
Your file system has errors. Run fsck on the file system and inspect/delete the contents of lost+found. Also note that 385MiB are reserved for root (97894 blocks). You might want to adjust that value with tune2fs.

@Ian To display file system information, use: tune2fs -l /dev/<device>

@appas First you register the file extension to a MIME type. Then you assign an application to the MIME type as depicted in this answer.

comment Is it possible to reclaim files after incorrect unmount?
If the data is on the disk but the files are corrupted you might have a chance. Go through the questions tagged #data-recovery and read the answers. If the data is not on the disk then the answer is no. It hasn't been deleted from the disk, it has never been there and thus it cannot recovered.

comment Working with Rsync and changing archives
Note that rsync -a does not preserve hard links. This might be one reason for the discrepancy. To know exactly what's the difference, run a recursive diff on both archives. That'll give you some insight. Rsync is definitely a suitable tool for creating backups if you take care of maintaining a history.

comment ZFS Raid or Hardware Raid in FreeNAS
@RomeoNinov It's true that all operations run on the main CPU. But I haven't seen a system that is CPU bound regarding the ZFS operations. All systems I've seen have always been network or IO bound (disk). “ZFS in FreeNAS is not ready for enterprise” → Do you have any resources backing up that claim? I've seen it successfully running in several enterprises and don't hesitate to recommend FreeNAS or TrueNAS to enterprises.

comment ZFS Raid or Hardware Raid in FreeNAS
ZFS and hardware RAID often does not play well and you might lose the pool under certain circumstances. When using freenas don't use hardware RAID.

comment Prevent file corruption
It looks like ZFS might be something for you. It does automatic checksumming and can correct errors (if you have redunadancy, which you totally should). Furthermore, the snapshots help a lot in setting up a backup system including history.

comment How to restore EFI partition for Fedora 21
Creating an ESP is as simple as creating a new partition, preferably FAT32, and marking it as active. But that's not a restore because it doesn't contain any EFI applications, so your system won't boot. The EFI applications are regular files on a file system, nothing fancy about that. That's why I assume this question is a duplicate.

comment How to restore EFI partition for Fedora 21
First you create a disk image to prevent further damage. Then you create a new ESP and recover the files from the backup.
