Today i found a save file for a game (or rather someone send it to me via pm after i requested it on reddit) exported with save manager 0.7. Before i use it: Is there any bricking risk involved with save files?

A while ago i downloaded a VT2.0 gamedump (tales of hearts) from another well known site and even though i ran it through savedump today and checked the "SAFE" status in VPK viewer (it was SAFE), Vita Shell gave me an "additional permission rights" warning. How is such a thing possible. BTW: I actually do trust the mods/admins/uploaders of the page i got it from.
