I would process both of them. It does no harm. If there are "repeat" QSO's 
the LOTW system will throw one out. My guess is both files are the same, 
maybe each piece of software uses a different set  of "start" and "end" file 
gibberish. You can also see a report in LOTW of what you processed, that 
should close the loop.
