Change Ventoy system partition size - Kmeleon - 05-02-2021

I'm using the same usb Key with PC windows XP to 10, Pc Linux, Mac and android 6 to 9.
android 6 can't find my exFat partition, only fat partition be seen. but There some apk to make it detected (paragon exfat/ntfs) and drivers for old windows
The Fat partition is too small to copy drivers, apk and file explorer compatible.
so my question : is there a way to make partition size larger to copy exFat driver and file explorer compatible on Fat partition ?

Thanks for answers !
Best regards

If you mean the first partition, you can freely reformat it to NTFS and resize it (as long as you keep the structure detailed in https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_disk_layout.html or https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_disk_layout_gpt.html).

The second partition can't really be touched (at least starting with v1.0.28) or else Ventoy will fail to boot with an unsupported error message.

The FAT partition (partition 2 with label VTOYEFI) is 32MB size and can NOT be changed.
You can reserver some space and create partition 3/partition 4 with the size you want.
