I disagree.

On Windows XP (and 2000?), you can "mount" a local drive in a
directory. This means, that C:\Appl can be a complete partition.
Suppose that the partition holding C:\ is 2GiB small. Suppose
that a new partition has 50GiB left. If you mount that new
partition in C:\Appl, you've got the situation that the
directory C:\Appl is larger than the drive holding C:.
