Unless you have quota-ing software, whenever you have something that arbitrary people can upload data to, you do run the risk of a DoS attack. Someone can just fill your hard disk with garbage :-) So, I would recommend two partitions in this case. 100GB or so for Windows + Pagefile (there's no real need to have a separate partition for your pagefile - you can just make it a fixed size if you want to avoid fragmentation). The rest of the disk for your user files, web content and uploads.
