It holds the bootmanager files. It should not be deleted. Have you cleaned up up your counterfeit installation yet?

It should not have a letter. Why did you give it one ?

If you do not know what the System Reserved partition is for, then you should read up on it

Remove the drive letter so nothing writes to that partition and clogs it: Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums
