The main risk is to lose your data, and give me a trial. But I'm not of the kind to fatten the judges and lawyers. So you are warned

All thumbs use flash ram technology, which are not a model of reliability.
It is supposed to replace floppies, but sometimes floppies or disks are more robust.
So I recommend to use a sata/usb converter (20€ = 20$ according Apple) and a 2.5' sata disk (from a dammaged PC portable for example), PFS3 formatted (partition size up to 80GB) This works with Workbench 1.3 and higher.
