No, it should be perfectly fine since MS will not remove anything from
the in queue before it has successfully been put in the out queue...
So if there is a system halt/reboot for some unforseeable reason,
it'll just reprocess the files still in the in queue.
You might want to place your SA cachce db somewhere else though...
ISTR it being put there by default:-).
