I set auto save to nil after discovering this, but they keep popping up. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

It's not the typical #filename#, it's making a dotfile .#

    Those are lock files. See my answer here: emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/8193/…

  • @nanny Thank you so much. I need to disable them completely...but only for a certain directory. Is there any way I could do that?

  • Unless you reimplement that functionality in Emacs Lisp, no.

  • @AR7 You could use a .dir-locals.el file: gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/…

  • That wouldn't work that well because create-lockfiles isn't a buffer-local variable.
