Switching between Real-Time and Batch Posting mode

Hello,
We are using Peachtree 2006 and recently did some custom integration in which we are using a tool called Pawcom to pull data out of Peachtree and post data such as invoices, sales orders, and inventory
adjustments. In order to do this, we had to change from Real-Time mode to Batch mode in order for everything to work correctly. However, do run our backups, we have to change back to Real-Time mode.
My question is does this put us at risk of data corruption when switching posting modes like we are. Is anyone else doing integration like this that can provide some insight?
Thanks in advance.

In general, I don't see any issues here. Of course anytime you are doing a large data transfer, you should always make a backup before (if PT won't let you, just copy the company folder and delete it when you are done). It is also best to do the conversion on the server or where the company resides, with a UPS on the unit this way if the power cycles you don't have to start over.

There should be no problems switching back and forth between Batch and Real Time posting. But I'm curious, as to why when doing a backup do you have to switch to Real Time? You should be able to backup whether in Batch or Real Time.
Please make sure your backup is a complete backup and not an incremental backup. If you have a crash and try to restore an incremental back, your data will become seriously corrupted.
