No they will not harm. These files are encrypted and i recommend you to delete them all. Hope you have a valid backup to restore?
Did you clean, reimage or reinstall the infection source?

This normally means:

Some client machines are/were infected.
This clients have encrypted data files and removed the original data.

Step 1) Find the infected machines and clean them.
Step 2) Check your backups whether the original files are covered by your backup.
Step 3) Restore the files from your backup.
Step 4) Now you can delete those files.

Cause it is unusable for you, as long as you don't pay the ransom.
