I use RHEL/CentOS 7.9, and using
ntfs-3g-libs-2021.8.22-2.el7.x86_64.rpm which I believe come from the EPEL repository, I have no problems with mounting an ntfs partition as writable. In fact using this latest ntfs-3g I do not even have to use the
-t ntfs-3g option for the mount command. My ntfs file systems however do have
rwxrwxrwx for everything on them when being mounted in linux.
Back when I was using ntfs-3g, like 2019 version, it did work but I had to use the
-t ntfs-3g option when mounting, among other nuances.
So the current answer to this question, based on my experience and I use a usb portable disk formatted as ntfs under windows 10 to transfer data between my windows pc to linux servers... all the time for the last couple years... I have no problems mounting an ntfs partition in linux, and being able to write to it regardless of the linux user. So use the latest ntfs-3g version.
But if you want to ntfs-3g mount an ntfs partition and have a reasonable user/group permission policy that is a different story.
