So if you don't want to make regular backups, FFS gives you the most safe data storage. With SFS and PFS you might loose everything at once.
Strange point of view: I use SFS since 20+ years (switched also to WinUAE with SFS). It's one of the safest fs around. Never had a corrupted file. It's also MUCH faster (even if you just open a drawer you'll notice this), and has many other technical enhancements compared to FFS.
With FFS I've had problems instead as almost all Amiga users, corrupt files and dir structure.

There's a reason why there is no need of many recover tools on SFS
In short: PREVENT problems, it's a better philosophy.
