Default Which of these SD card files can I safely delete?

My SD card is really cluttered and I'd like to clean it up.

.estrongs
.face
.SPenSDK30
.Spensound
Android
backups
CameraZOOM
clockworkmod
data
data-app
DCIM
doubleTwist
Download
KingsoftOffice
media
Movies
Music
Nandroid_Manager
Nearby
onandroid
pers
Photo Grid
Pictures
Playlists
Ringtones
roidapp
Samsung
tapatalk4
Tasker
TempImages
TitaniumBackup
WhatsApp
Yahoo!
.aid.bak
.bugsense
.enref
.eu.chainfire.mobileodin.flashkernel.n9005.v5
.profig.os
busybox-stericson
log.txt
toolbox-stericson
Xposed-Disabler-Recovery.zip

Particularly, I'm looking at the files, not folders. The folders are pretty self-explanatory, but what about files like .aid.bak and .enref? Can they be safely deleted?

Talking What you can delete

I was googling what files I could delete, couldn't find any satisfactory answers, so I took the risk for some folders through trial and error.

This is what I know about some of the files:

SAFE TO DELETE
.face
.SPenSDK30
DCIM (in here are pictures you took with the phone's camera)
Download (you will lose the things you have previously downloaded)
media (you will lose files you have in here)
Movies (you will lose files)
Pictures (you will lose files)
Playlists (you will lose the playlists you have in your music player)
Music (you will lose files)
TempImages

FOLDERS CREATED BY APPS: So when you delete these files, it may affect the performance of the respective applications.
CameraZOOM
clockworkmod
doubleTwist
KingsoftOffice
Nandroid_Manager
Photo Grid
roidapp
tapatalk4
Tasker
TitaniumBackup
WhatsApp
Yahoo!
Xposed-Disabler-Recovery.zip

I'm no expert, but hope this helps

Afaik with my old note 1 I sometimes format the internal storage when it became cluttered. Any file or folder needed by some apps will be regenerated after reboot
