I had to wipe my Mac and I am now going through my backup and I see lots of different .lrdata and .lrcat files

1. Do I need any of the .lrdata files? Helper.lrdata. Previews.lrdata, Synch.lrdata?

2. I know which catalog file is the correct one, though I also have .lrcat-wal and .lrcat.lock. Do I need to do anything with these?

Thanks in advance

The lrdata files are specific to a lrcat file so if you do not need a specific lrcat file you can also delete the corresponding lrdata file.
