Thunderbird deleting message

When I opened Thunderbird today I noticed that there were a lot of my emails not there. I looked in the activity manager and found the document attached to this. I don't understand why TB would just out of the blue index the messages and then delete them? Also how can I get them back?

Is your account IMAP? Most occasions where folk come here complaining about Thunderbird deleting mail they do not understand IMAP is synchronized and the deletions on their phone and web browser are reflected in the mail client (Thunderbird) as the changes are synchronized from the server

No account is not IMAP. I've have had my TB account for almost 8 years now. no changes in settings or new divices that would have done this.

I have a back up from just the other day that I can use to undo the activity that TB has done. Can anyone tell me what file/folders do I want to restore for this to happen?
