I can agree with you that if your are running version 6.2 of Sitefinity 200MB is the absolute minimum for a disk space. I did a little investigation and it seems that the size of the empty project is increased from 197MB in version 5.4 to 227MB in version 6.2. We will review all of the System Requirements and will update them if it is neccessary.
