Variables file become corrupt when sudden shutdown

Hey there!

In the last year, we have experimented three times the same issue:

It occurs an unexpected shutdown (from the whole factory i.e.) and the .variables file becomes corrupt and then I am not able to start the program.

Our local distributor says that this happens because the UR updates periodically this file, and if the shutdown occurs during the update, the file will become corrupt.

I could assume that this unlikely to happen, but it is the third time in one year. I think that this should not happen.

Is there a solution different from using an UPS?

Could anyone explain to me how this periodical update works?

Thanks in advance,
