Windows 7: Windows live mail 2012 keeps downloading old e-mails!

Windows live mail 2012 keeps downloading old e-mails!

As of yesterday, my Windows Live mail 2012 keeps downloading old e-mails from years ago. Can't stop it. I have no idea how to fix this problem. The only thing I did yesterday, that may have affected things, is I exported all my e-mails to a folder I created on my desktop. Then I was going to drag the folder to my external HD. But I'm not sure where the folder went to because it's not on my external HD anywhere. I looked at the Windows Live 2012 folder in windows explorer, thinking it may have moved there but I'm not sure what should be in there. (I think it's in there. Don't want to start deleting stuff.) I wonder if system restore would help. Always nervous about doing that. Any help is always appreciated. Thanks
