Multiple partitions to use the drive for other things
I'm not sure if this is a Ventoy specific question, but I'm hoping someone with experience can answer.

The thing is I have a robot lawnmower, a 3D printer, and some other hardware, which requires a FAT32 partition with files on it for firmware updates. Just yesterday I formatted my 128GB USB drive as FAT32 and updated my lawnmower.

Ventoy, by default, creates an exFAT partition. No issues there, as all my systems, computers, laptops, phones, etc. can read exFAT. However, if I want to use that USB drive to update stuff like my lawnmower, what would the proper way be then? Can Ventoy read all of the partitions? Should I just create a ~8GB FAT32 partition at the start of the blocks, then create an exFAT partition for the remaining?

Let me know what you think. I essentially want to use my USB drive as an "all in one" stick, that can do everything and anything.
