We recently switched some new projects to .NET 5. With this we have run into locked files issues when deploying.
I have added recently app_offline: true and also added sync_retry_attempts: 20 sync_retry_interval: 3000 however deploy still fails.

Do you have any recommendations on how to continue?

    Are you deploying to your own server or Azure App Service?

    Some recommendations for Web Deploy:

    1) Try setting "Do not user checksum for comparing files" flag to see if that helps.
    2) If you deploy to Azure App Service environment that you can try using slots. They will have different publishing profiles (URLs, credentials, etc.), so you can publish to staging then swap it with production and so on. AppVeyor doesn't provide built-in support for slots, but you can use az CLI to to that.
