Using all_Squash means every access the NTFS mount as UID -2 (e.g.
65534) (although your distro may use a different UID). Does *that* UID
have rw permissions?

root_squash is just A Good Idea. all-squash depends on your
circumstances (in your case, I doubt it's practical).

But do you want the operation to essentially freeze the machine/terminal
(hard) or fail quietly and try in the background (soft)? You probably
want soft if it's a nonessential mount (like /usr/local or /games) and
hard if it's a essential mount (like /bin or /home).
