Manjaro created partitions not being shown on win10

I used the gparted gui to create 2 50gb ish partitions on my internal sata data/non-boot drive (i dual boot off the nvme ssd) i then set up timeshift in sda1 and backintime in sda3 and it creates snapshots fine (at least i think so, i havent tried a restore but everything goes through and it looks like the snapshots are indeed present when looking in dolphin) but when i boot into my win10 install its partition manager shows the whole sda drive (drive d in win10) as one big 931.5 gb ntsf partition. I intended on the 833gb partition being for win10 storage + backups in win 10 and things do download to the drive fine but im worried that windows thinking it has the whole 931gb will corrupt things down the road. am i doing something wrong? my next step was gonna be to delete time shift and backintime snapshots then create the 2 50 gb partitions in windows itself then redo the snapshots in manjaro so that windows knows it doesnt have the whole drive. would that work? any help would be appreciated. heres an lsblk read out, lmk if you want me to paste anything else just include the command as im new to manjaro n dont no much. also the nvme drive partitions do show up correctly in win10

Linux filesystems is not readily available from Windows - that’s how it is.
