NTFS filesystems _may_, under certain circumstances, create "resident"
files of the type described. You won't be able to modify these.

Filesystems mounted with mount_ntfs can't modify resident files. If you
create a small file it will be nonresident, and you should be able to
edit it (providing you don't fall foul of the other NTFS writing
restrictions).
