No, there is no bulletproof way of protecting files from
corruption from any application on modern computer systems.
Power interruptions or other system glitches can corrupt files
totally independent of the app that created them whether open or
not at the time of the event. Since any file is an arbitrary
sequence of bytes, there is no obvious way to examine a
particular file short of opening it in the app that created it
to determine if the file is corrupt.
