Agreed, the damage may come from windows fragmenting of the drive and 
you inadvertently erase data. Be that as it may, unless there is a 
compelling reason to keep a Windows partition (and there are i.e. wives) 
then a vm has been were I landed as well for the occasional program that 
I haven't found a substitute for in linux.  FWIW, that hasn't happened 
in about a year either.  Linux, Xubuntu has come a long way and you can 
go windows free easily.
