There is only an 80% chance that your backup user profile is intact. There is still a 20% chance that it will also be corrupted. That's why we strongly recommend making an additional manual monthly backup to an external hard drive or the cloud. We keep 4 copies of previous user profiles because we are a little paranoid. While there is nothing you can do to prevent user profile corruption, you can significantly reduce the odds by waiting for Dragon to save your profile before shutting down your computer. This is the most common reason for Dragon user profile corruption. In our opinion, this was a stupid Ver. 15 change that nobody asked for or wants. A prompt to save your user profile, as with previous versions of Dragon, would have been preferred because we don't always want to save our profile. KnowBrainer 2017 also includes a command called Close Dragon and KnowBrainer which prevents Dragon from saving your profile; for exactly this reason. Having said that, we have been using Dragon since 1996 (a year before he went public) and never experienced a corrupted user profile because saving your user profile when Dragon is closing also tends to be a bit more risky, even if it's not automatic. If you wish to save your user profile, we recommend saying save user profile, before closing Dragon.
