Suppressing "Could not change permissions" message after copying a file to NTFS Partition in Linux

If I try to copy a file onto a NTFS partition in Linux, I get a warning message Could not change permissions for <file-name>. Is there any way to suppress this message ? I can live with this message while I copy the files in terminal, but when transferring from Dolphin a modal dialog box is shown and it gets pretty irritating.

"Change the line:

/dev/sda6 /mnt/sda6 ntfs-3g defaults,silent,locale=en_US.utf8,auto,rw,allow_other,umask=000,gid=users,user,nls=utf8,exe 1 0

to

/dev/sda6 /mnt/sda6 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 1 0*
