Onedrive lock files when using VS code

I am working on a html file which is synchronized by onedrive.
However it is locked and not able to be saved.

onedrive status: processing changes & this file is uploaded
file status in file explore: two blue cycle arrows.

Seems like that onedrive finished upload but did not unlock the file. Might be some conflict with VS code way of opening files

This happened everyday.

    Hi, @Fu, Xing
    You can try the following methods:

    1. Mark the file as 'Always on this device'
    2. End the onedrive sync process using windows Task Manager, after which you turn oneDrive back on and sync.
    3. Reset the OneDrive reset-onedrive
