I'm syncing documents with google drive and want LibreOffice Writer to stop generating lock files every time I open a document because they fill up my deleted list with junk, and I'm the only person ever accessing them so I don't need locking. This solution explains how to disable file locking in general, but the instructions don't seem to be valid for Windows. I'm specifically using Windows 7, how can I disable file locking?

Does anyone know how to stop LibreOffice from a Windows 7 machine?
