3 Damaged files in 1 Week


There is something going on with my computer where my files won't open because they are damaged. It has happened three times in three different files in the past 5 work days. Unfortunately, the backup files have been corrupted as well, so I have had to use the "time machine" on Dropbox to find a good file to use and then redo my work. I can't keep doing this every other day. Can anyone help me understand how my files are getting corrupted in the first place? I would like to get past this.




P.S. In searching through deleted backup files, I have found that some of them might not be saving properly. The size of the file will drop from around 110 MB to 100 MB. I am not purging or deleting anything, os this doesn't make sense.

This type of corruption is not typical. Things like this are often due to a failing drive or bad memory.  Have you don't a hardware check on your computer?
