If they show up in as an index in your search results, then you should be able to examine them under Settings > Indexes. You can also search them: index=123* would do it.

I don't believe that Splunk would create index names or file names like these. So they were created by someone or some process on your system.

if they are not indexes, but are instead files - what is the full file path?
