I cloned my harddrive to a SSD by moving the system directory and C: to it.
Does the system directory every change; ie. in a few months will the one on the harddrive be the same as the one on the SSD, or will the SSD copy change?
I am really wondering how necessary it is to back it up. Yeah, it is small, but it is an additional directory.

Yes, it changes. Updates are applied, software is added or removed which means files are added or removed an the registry gets updated. You definitely want to backup your boot drive.
