Actually, such thing happened to me! As I was testing the function for this very thread, I mistakenly start mirroring a branch to the root ! I killed the ZTree instance before it did too much damage deleting all directories on my hard disk (!), but it did delete some. Fortunately, I could recover files from my Crashplan backup and lost nothing in the end.
