I have been trying to create a sitemap.xml for Google.
There have been various problems.  
I tried to solve these by trying different software and the result is
a real conflict and frankly a mess of files I do not know what to do with.
I would like to erase everything and start again.
But I am concferned about deleting files in case I delete something that might either
A.  Mess up the operation of my site
or
B. will prevent ANY sitemap being created.
I think most of these files have been created by xml-sitempa.com
It looks good software but the support is lousy.

Can an expert please tell me which of these files in the different directories listed below that I can delete SAFELY to start again.
Thanks
