BRIDGE: the Index.xml file under folder UserSort is losing entries

My manual sorts in my Bridge collections are evaporating. I know that the sorts are stored in users/Jamesgray/library/Applications support/Adobe/Bridge CC/UserSort. Within that folder there is a file index.xml and a series of files UserSort n. xml where only the n changes and it is an integer. It is apparent the file index.xml is how Bridge knows which User sort corresponds to which collection. Twice recently I have found that my manual sort order has been lost. I looked in the file Index.xml and found that there was an entry for only 2 of my collections even though there are currently 160 of the user sorts. I do not have that many collections. By looking in my time machine backup I have been able to find the index file that contains more than 20 references to user sorts. I have restored that one file and my manual sort order is back. What am I doing wrong and what can I do to prevent this in the future?
