Disable filelocking for 1 file

Is there any way to disable file locking for 1 file?

My banking software has a file ****.mgz

The Windows Client can’t update this file to cloud (Banking software is switched off).
File would be locked. I have to change the config file: ‘filelocking.enabled’ => false

After this the Client can update the file and I change the config file again (‘filelocking.enabled’ => true).

Any Ideas to avoid this behaviour?

It unlocks automatically after some time. You could certainly unlock in manually in a database, ideally you have configured it properly with redis that it should not happen.
