BIDS validator naming error

Hello there!

I am trying to organize my dataset into BIDS format. I have run my data through the web build of the bids validator and keep getting a naming error for a few of my files.

I must be missing something but I’m not sure what. Any help would be much appreciated!

The file names that keep getting errors are:

As a side note, there seems to be ‘~’ at the end of each of them - I have no idea why that is there and how to remove it.


Those are probably hidden files created by the particular editor you used to edit the files. See

Oh no! Thanks for the insight.
