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 version, edition level and release of Quicken are you using? 
    Click Help / About Quicken (Mac: Quicken / About Quicken) to get this information.
    What version of Windows or Mac OS are you using?

    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?

    I have this file on the Onedrive folder, but it's in the local file system...

    Ah... I'll try moving to the local drive and see if the behavior changes... Thanks for the tip...
