fMRIPrep on faced data

Hi everyone!

Our group is working on sharing a MRI dataset, including both the raw and preprocessed data. We ran fMRIPrep, but we’ve just realized we had never defaced the T1’s, so we preprocessed the data with the faced T1’s. Do you think this would change the outputs? Does anyone have any experience comparing both situations (Faced vs Defaced)? Our dataset is quite large, so we would like to avoid repreprocessing everything again, if possible.

Thanks a lot!
