For real fault tolerance you would need a fault tolerant file system
with the current implementation. The current data store implementation
does not have a replication mechanism, so if you backup data every 15
minutes, the amount of data you can possibly loose is 15 minutes
(sorry to state the obvious).

For some situations it still does, however over time those cases will
get less and less. You will possibly get temp files when you are using
RMI or WebDAV, and when you export or import large objects using XML.
