Eliminating bogus files

In trying to get everything switched from Quicken and OneDrive to Money Dance and Drop Box, we got confused and ended up with several copies/bogus files. We can see how to delete accounts within a file, but how do you delete a file entirely? All we can file are long strings of random letters/numbers for file names and we can't figure out which is the correct file and which are the unneeded ones to get rid of them to avoid further confusion. Can anyone help us do such a simple task?
