If you look in your address book (Tools->Address Book), you will
probably find a number of folders. 

These are what is referenced by those files.

The .bak file are standard procedure.

They don't take up much space so it might be best to leave them alone.

Alternatively back up your .claws-mail folder, delete the ones
that you want to and then see what happens
