Exchange sending out old sent email from month ago after reboot.

I have a couple of strange things happen with our exchange 2013  server. I noticed that the C: volume was getting low on free space and I didn’t see any real cause.
I was going to expand the volume size, but before I did that I need to bounce the box to finish an install of a new backup agent for my backup Exec upgrade.
After I bounced the box I noticed that the c: volume had gone from 8.5 gig free to 23.1 gig free.

First question: What may have been using up the space and why restarting would reclaim so much? I did not change the volume size yet.

Second question: I have a few users that are saying their email account is resending email that they had already sent from about a month ago after the reboot of the exchange 2013 server. Any ideas on the cause of that?
