The file system there is little independent. You do not make the buggy drive.
Linux does not work well with NTFS, and Windows doesn't work well with ext4, so choose still more on what OS you use.
But in principle, data recovery from NTFS is more likely than with ext4 in the home. But if it comes to that, to be honest the difference in the file system it is unlikely that you will greatly help. Better then to make backups in two different places.
