The message would only apply to the Windows programs running on top of the wine layer. But the question of which files could be affected is obviously more complicated: what files could the programs potentially access? Have you limited that? As administrator of your system you are the best person to judge what risks you are taking because you know what you are running, what precautions you have taken, and the consequences of any data losses. For many purposes simply ensuring that you make frequent backups and can reinstall your software is sufficient.
