Might be referring to this:

Some default settings from certain hard-drive manufacturers may cause 
drives to wear out faster.  But you get these kinds of warnings all the 
time.  Some badly made CRTs could blow out if bad sync rates are set,  
backup because it could overwrite all of your data with ASCII pr0n, 
etc.  Basically, it is for testing.  We don't know what might go wrong, 
so don't get mad if something breaks.
