Most common cause is shutting down/reseting when not all data has been flushed to the disk (Buffers are usually flushed after 1-3s delay).

It is also possible some game(s) with bad hd support take over the system too quickly after saving. Shutting down/reseting without exiting the game first game cause same problem.

This is not emulator specific and emulation also can't protect from it. (Unless you use directory harddrives)

Only "fix" is to not use FFS.

EDIT: Another possibility is >4G wrap around problem but it also most commonly hides for some time and suddenly whole partition is gone..
