No, totally.
As I wrote in my list reply, which server appears to have eaten, SYSTEM is a
Windows equivalent for 'root', but unlike POSIX root, doesn't have an implicit
carte blanche. All Windows rights are explicit. You have to either grant
access to the system, or to grant SeBackup* rights to user.
