onedrive for business vs invalid char of lock file

Hi

I use windows 8.1 and onedrive for business. I have a folder in my pc that sync with onedrive for business. Everytime I open a file that is stored in this folder, the lock file is created and onedrive popup a message "Name: .~lock.myfile.xlsx# / Error: the name or type isn't allowed. Resolution: remove the item from your OndeDrive folder. For info...".

The problem is invalid characters in file name: "~" and "#".

This link explains these limitations for file name: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Invalid-characters-in-file-or-folder-names-or-invalid-file-types-in-OneDrive-for-Business-64883a5d-228e-48f5-b3d2-eb39e07630fa

How can I get a solution for this invalid characteres?
