Hello Anders,
It's required to allow for backup of the volume.
If the volume size is too small backup cannot take place on that volume,
this would prevent those volumes from being backed up or restored

That's not the original reason given. Nor does that explain why in Win7 the
partition is only 200 MB. The original reason given was that certain
servicing operations, such as patching Office required a certain amount of
free space on the system volume.
