How should I partition my HDDs?

Hi, I have got my new computer and I have put my old drives in it. The drives in it now are 1. 500gb (OS and files) 2. 1tb (storage) 3. 500gb (storage) 4. 1tb (storage) I was wondering how should I partition them I plan to use drive 1 just for the OS (win10) and my files but plan to upgrade to an SSD in future. Drive 2 and 3 are storage drives from my old pc but they are messy and I will be re arranging them. Drive 4 is the old 1tb from my laptop (upgraded to SSD) and that has been formatted. I have thought of doing this: leave drive 1 alone. Arrange the files on drive 2 but mostly leave alone. On drive 3 use that for games. On drive 4 I would split it into 3 partitions (1 500gb, and 2 250gb partitions) and use 1 of the 250gb partitions to keep all the stuff for my music production on, the other 250gb for all my YouTube stuff, and the 500gb to store what drive 3 had. Tell me what you think of that and any suggestions you have down below.

Storage spaces works fine for most people including me
