Options to use ntfs formatted disk

I have a laptop with one SSD (256GB) and one SATA (1TB)
I use the SSD for dual boot. the SATA formated as NTFS.

  1. I have moved my dokcer directory to the NTFS mount
  2. I’m using overlayfs storage drive
  3. run/exec commands fails.

what are my options to utilize the ntfs disk?
is this my only option? to re-partition the sata disk and format it to ext4/xfs?
