I would guess the biggest issue will be with making sure that the data types (Recollect uses data_collection instead of everything else including dataset) and metadata fields are mapping appropriately. I'm not aware of it removing the old types (unless I've done something particularly bizarre with mine...). The other thing is if you're migrating from a much older version of EPrints - that may introduce additional complications.
I'm not sure what would *break* from using it, but you might lose functionality or make stuff invisible. I've not done it before, so am also guessing.

Subject: [EP-tech] Re: Recollect plugin installation and migrating repository
Be careful, the ReCollect plugin "reprofiles" your repository (i.e. makes it significantly different). It's really designed to turn your repository into a stand-alone data repository (please correct me if I'm wrong, EPrints community).
I would suggest having a play, and then figuring out which items to migrate. If there are significant changes to the database schema, migration may be difficult. I don't have any direct experience with this, so I don't really know.
