Hi, I have a mounted an NTFS partition that is set as "rw" in fstab. I can

Yes; I imagine that *everybody* who has tried this has encountered
this (or something similar) before...

If you RTF(riendly ;-)M, you'll see this:

----------------------------------
WRITING
     There is limited writing ability.  Limitations:
file must be nonresident and must not contain any sparces
(uninitialized areas); compressed files are also not supported.
The file name must not contain multibyte characters.
----------------------------------

A port exists (ntfsprogs) that *might* write NTFS a
tad better, but I'm not sure that it's at all guaranteed.
I'm certainly not going to do so ;-)

IIRC, when you look up "proprietary" at Wikipedia, NTFS
is a synonym. :-D
