Yes, this is true. However, other file systems do not offer *any* hint of
telling you when your data is corrupt on the platter like ZFS will. So if
you know you don't have ECC protection, then you should not expect your
data to be protected end to end. If you have ECC and a "regular" file
system, the same is true. You just never know.
