Just finished a round with the online Ur. I jumped down into the everfall and the game tries to make a save and I get a message that the save failed. So I went to the dash board, started the game again and saw what I knew would be there. Save corrupted.
Fortunately, I had a recent back-up save but I still lost about 3 hours of playtime.
A great big thank you to Dr. Nick who helped me with questions I had about deleting the corrupted save.

What's going on? I know Capcom has had these horrible corrupted save problems since the original DD release. But you would've thought that they would have addressed it by know.
I'm pleased that La Pearlafx only lost a few hours of gameplay. I'm also pleased that I only lost a couple of days of simple questing (doing RC rounds for other players), and none of my online Ur kills. :)
The lesson is... make back-up saves frequently.

Do you think they are doing it on purpose so we won't get the bonuses for DA and will have to buy them as seperate dlc? *conspiracy theory* XD Just kidding, but seriously, the save corruption is horrible in this game. Has Capcom at least acknowledged that it happens/said they're working on it?
How do we make sure that the save that we back-up itself is not corrupted? Is simply loading it and then quitting to see if it'll load enough or could it happen randomly?

Nah, not that. If anything, the only legit thing I can think that they would be angry about would be the Rift Crystal boosters like earning millions and millions then starting DA with a big grin then capcom trolls their save file.
I think it's best to not only usb backup, but have an additional usb backup.
Someone was very OCD even about their backing up method. They would save, go to main menu, load the game to check the save wasn't corrupted, then go back to main menu, exit to dashboard then backup.
Since the game is a time sink and seeing some ppl with like 1115 hours gameplay time invested, I can see how ppl would do this.
