What are these partitions exactly?

I bought an Acer laptop recently. I'm primarily running Ubuntu, with a windows partition for gaming. Anyway, there are a couple of partitions and I'm not sure what their purpose is. I'm assuming that one of them is the install media for Windows, but the other one has me stumped. One is 3.8 GB and the other is 15 GB. The label on the 15 GB one is PQSERVICE. They are both NTFS.

They both look like they're used to restore and diagnose the computer. I would say the 15GB is your actual restore information, and your 3.8GB one is the application to launch it. Although 3.8GB seems a bit big for a PE installation. Is there any free space on the 3.8GB partition?
