    Plenty, though a small fraction.

    Visual Studio works fine in a VM, so have you considered VirtualBox instead? (At least until you can back things up).

    I've had no issues with data loss with Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro.

    Nothing's perfect. As long as you have a good back-up of your data, any data loss is just a mild inconvenience .
