You're more likely going to damage the NTFS partition.  I would argue
seriously against writing anything to the NTFS partition from linux.  I
have had occasion to move files from Windows to linux from NTFS
partitions but only copying the file to linux and next time I boot to
Windows, I delete the file if I need to.  I've blown up my share of NTFS
partitions playing around with writing from linux.  It's not for the
faint hearted.
