Constant need to "validate and repair" before successful cloud sync

For some time now, the cloud sync on exit fails and then I have to do a "validate and repair" file operation. Seems like every 2-3 sessions... What is going on and is this a known problem?

    More details, please.
    Do you use Quicken Mac or Quicken for Windows? US or Canadian version?

    What is the exact and complete path to your Quicken data file, e.g., C:\Users\username\Documents\Quicken\QDATA.QDF?
    Do you use any cloud backup software like Dropbox, Onedrive, or other? Is this backup software directly accessing the atcive Quicken data file?
