It's odd that they are not being backed up.  THey are not serious though, this can be safely ignored.  

They Symantec and .net 2.0 files would be re-recreated on a re-install and the DHCP and WINS databases would also be re-created when you re-installed your server.

This is very common, and not really anything to worry about.  These are temporary and in-use files.  the reality is that they would simply be recrreated if lost anyway, assuming you don't reinstall Windows before recovering a backup of the C drive, in which case is really really doesn't matter.  At the end of the day, this is harmless.
