I have two NTFS drives on my fstab with the options uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=027,fmask=137. One has a Windows installation, and the other just has files on it. I've been reading and writing from the latter from both OSes with no issues, but just now when I added one file to Windows/Users/<my username>/Documents/, I booted into Windows to find out I had lost write access to my own home folder. After manually re-adding write access (which did work) and rebooting the computer, chkdsk tried to run but failed because it couldn't lock the drive. How do I get my Windows partition's permissions back to what they should be?

I'm not sure it's relevant, but I just saw something in another discussion on the forums about how Windows 8 doesn't actually shut down, it just hibernates - and this is could lead to problems if one were to write to the hibernated disk from another OS.
If this is Windows 8 you may want to look into that - but that's all of it I know.
Luckily, it's Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
