The kernel is very reliable and will certainly not destroy your data, or even 
require a chkdsk from windows. It does however support writing less often. 
For both modes, writing is enabled, but does not always succeed. Whether or 
not it succeeds is dependent on the structure of the directory the file is to 
be written into.
