Changing file system makes the partition unformatted. You have to backup all files before the change and restore them afterwards.

But you are in emulated environment. Just make a second HDF with PFS and copy all files from the old to the new one.

But be warned: PFS and SFS are resistant against validation errors. But they can become corrupted, too. And then usually everything is lost. FFS is the best regarding data safety.

Making a backup us most easy with emulation. Just duplicate the HDF and there you are.
