Is it safe to share a database stored on a network drive instead of a local drive (FMP 11)?

Post

I have just started to share a database across the company network to be used on two computers. The database is stored on the network drive since the network drive is backed up daily. Once I set the file to be shared on the 'original' computer, and then opened it for the first time after closing, I got a message telling me the database should be stored on a local drive since it was shared, but it let me open it as shared anyway.

I now have the second computer accessing the database remotely and it is still stored on the server drive. Both computers are running FMP 11.

 

Is this a safe way to do things, or am I likely to run into issues?
