Recently I had problem with my NTFS partition on Ubuntu 16.10. The problem was I couldn't copy file to it and also Insync (great cross-platform client for Google Drive) was creating duplicated directories because it couldn't edit those directories.
Another symptom was unability to set execute bit. Well, without root privileges.
Solution is actually simple. First unmount your parition with
sudo umount /path/to/your/partition. Then you have to change
/etc/fstab file. Just add
gid parameter on the line
with your ntfs partition with the value
1000. I have also added
umask with the value
022 paramater as
you can see on the image (partition
uid means your user id. You can find it with command
gid is - as you already suspect - for group id. You can find it with
id -g. By default it's
umask is mask for your directories and files permission.
So the final line with your looks like this:
UUID=782B9DA75524938A /media/D ntfs defaults,umask=022,uid=1000,gid=1000 0
Don't forget to save your file and reboot or mount your partition back with
sudo mount /path/to/your/partition.
