Partitioning Scheme - Installers, Video, Audio media - diff/same parti

back at partitioning wahoo!
it's a bit cryptic. computer HD is my home so I put a lot of thought into these partions. Iloe the math and figuring this out!!

Main concern. I want to dual boot in linux and windows. No prob at all. Iv'e triple booted (with rubbish mac os) on a machine before. The only prob is dropbox syncing and file systems. I know windows can't access ext4 (correct?)

linux seems to access ntfs fine. I guess I'm just wanting more information on....

dual boot with dropbox
and
MAINLY, any problems of accessing read/write to 4-5 ntfs partitions FROM ext4 linux OS boot on a regular basis.



A CONSIDERATION THAT SOMEONE MIGHT PROVIDE INSIGHT ON

external video media (videos that I didn't make) = extvm
external audio media (audio files namely classical music and audio books that I didn't record)

fyi all the external folders are considerably small in size to the internal oens (i.e. I have more recorded audio and video that I did myself than of external type)

installers_games
installers_games_savedgame_data
installers_apps

ALL 5 of those are IMPORTANT (not as important as the internal stuff) but important

I dislike discs.
the conundrum or consideration rather is

extvm on 100gb partiton currently 38.8gb so plenty of space # this makes sense because I would want maximum size of extvm and not too muc
extam on 100gb partition
Cheers!


----------

do I put external video and exteranl audio and installers all on the same partition
OR
those three on three separate partitions
OR
external audio and video on same partitions and installers on separate?




--------------

this is all moving towards building my own rig, something that has been a DREAM (I have traveled the world done some amazing things, but being a genuine nerd, building a rig is more of a dream) for many ehars.

It will likely be
3,830GB of data
but really it's only 1TB of data (abou 600-1000gb) that is just backed up extensively. and then space for application installations!!

LOL!! I like that no one had a response to this. It wasn't my intention to be cryptic but i LIVE in a computer. Partitioning this (these) hard drives is like building a home. I have been refining a (extremely efficient and intelligent, but admittedly idiosyncratic and possibly eccentic, but it makes sense to me) organizing system for data for many years and it's undergone a lot of revisions and refinements. basically that was brainstorming.

I should be designing operating systems because that's basically the amount of detail that I'm going into. I am disgusted with the pre-defined folders in "home" folder. I need to learn more about boot loaders, read-write access of hard drive data etc. the SFH filesystems.
