You probably also have a "den.gnucash", a
When you are using GnuCash to work on the file "foo.gnucash", GnuCash will
periodically save a backup file with the name
"foo.gnucash.<timestamp>.gnucash". It is easy to get lots of these backup
files with varying timestamps in your data directory.
If you open up the backup file instead of your original data file, so you
are working on "foo.gnucash.<timestamp1>.gnucash", GnuCash will create
backup files with the name
"foo.gnucash.<timestamp1>.gnucash.<timestamp2>.gnucash". If you decide to
use that backup file instead of either your original data file or the first
backup file, you'll get three timestamps in the filename. It appears that
you ended up working on the backup of the backup of the backup of the
backup (for a total of 4 timestamps).
This can be a problem if you have been putting transactions into the
original file after you first started using the backup file instead. In
that case, there are unique transactions in two different files that have
to get (manually) merged.
If you are satisfied that the den.gnucash.20161107142750.gnu
file is complete and accurate, then I would suggest renaming it to
something simpler (like den2.gnucash) and deleting all the other gnucash
files that are confusing things.
There is a setting that controls how often it makes a backup, and how long
it keeps them around.
