What's the risk in turning off Windows XP file system tunneling?

http://serverfault.com – File system tunneling is discussed in the answers to this question: Incorrect file creation date in Windows XP/Vista Does any recent software depend on file system tunneling to maintain the creation date of files that it updates? (I'm guessing that the answer is "no"; that it was DOS-era programs that deleted the existing file and created a new one with the same name as the old one). Are there any other risks to disabling file system tunneling (using HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\MaximumTunnelEntries)? (HowTos)
