System reserved partition

How is the required size of this partition determined. I'm trying to rid my laptop of its restore partition and mutated the sizes by careless cloning.

It should only be 100MB and only about 30MB used. Microsoft has it set at that size.

If you partition the drive, prior to installing windows, then that system partition won't be there.
