[CLOSED] NTFS partition with NTFS3 gives weird fmask/dmask values

Hello,

I decided to switch the file system of a data partition that I share with Windows in my dual-boots system. I wanted to use the NTFS3 kernel driver. So I created the partition, and put the following lines on fstab

/dev/sda7   /mnt/SHARED   ntfs3   defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0133,dmask=0133   0 0

I'm the only user on my systems.

When I check output of mount -l I get

/dev/sda7 on /mnt/SHARED type ntfs3 (rw,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=37777600133,dmask=37777600133,iocharset=utf8)

Why I get those loooong fmask/dmask values?

touching a file in /mnt/SHARED creates a file with the expected access options and ownership, so they work, but looks funny.

Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks

I changed my fstab line into

/dev/sda7   /mnt/SHARED   ntfs3   defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0177,dmask=0077   0 0

Closing this thread, because it's not my fault
