Can the File Reader service "collide" with a Scheduled Task?

I have some UDS servers that are collected by the File Reader service. The log pull process is start by an HOURLY scheduled task, which pulls the logs, compares timestamps, then creates an ouput file. The file reader service looks for the output file every 5 minutes, and deletes it after it's read. Does anyone know what happens if the task and service run at the same time, or "collide?" I'm guessing that as long as the File Reader service runs more often, it'll pick up any output file that it missed during a collision?
