Ok thank you all guys for your reply. I think it is a permission problem too cause as root I am able to write to /windows/E.

You might need to specify a umask here.

Also might help showing us the permission in the Windows partition.
this is the outcome of my fstab:
Code:

and this is the outcome of the permissions for windows/E:

You can either add a "uid=<your_username>" option to change the owner of the mounted filesystem allowing you full access. Or you can change the value of the 2nd digit in the fmask and dmask options.
"fmask=113,dmask=002"

Here are some places you can get more info about "masking" (umask, fmask, etc):
