search iso or other files on all disk partitions
#1
Hi,

some of us need to plug our usb drive fat32 partition (windows xp - yes old PC could stay on XP), need NTFS (last windows version), exfat (for other). Sometime all in the same usb key, that why we could partitioned it.

Fat32 is universal but can't get  larges files
NTFS and exfat are not recognized 

so, if Ventoy could scan all partition (one Fat32, one NTFS, one Exfat) of the usbkey, found and list all bootable files, it could be a good improuvment !? not ?

As I known, before Windows 10, the Windows system can only mount the 1st partition of the USB drive. Parttition2/3/4 is invisible to the users.
Besides, Windows XP should recognize NTFS and exfat(with a patch).

Ventoy was designed only to scan 1st partition and can't be improved for this point.

"Windows XP should recognize NTFS and exfat(with a patch)"
and XP could only recognize the first partition of a usb key... so that means the first partition of the key need to be a fat32 partition to have patch files on disposition.
so the ventoy iso partition files is lock to large files iso.

exfat is not accessible to old android version.

is there a way to partition our key like :
- first partition FAT32
-second partition : ventoy partition
- third partition : ventoy iso files - exfat
