Looks like files under undo.
In this case, they can be turned off ( set noundofile), but I strongly do not recommend doing this. It's better to change the directory to store them from "relative to current" to something absolute outside of the project ( set undodir=). And you need to keep in mind that this directory must already be somehow created and be available to Vim, since it does not create it itself.

These are backup files, and it's better to disable them like this :

set nobackup
set nowritebackup

and the noundofile option will turn off the change history for you, why do you need vim without undo?
