Faded icons in Finder on EDD

I've got Macbook air 13" (2012) with Mac OS 10.8.2 and an external disk drive (NTFS), used NTFS Tools app to allow writing files.
Now i've copied couple of files to this EDD and all icons became faded (exception: files, that have been on this EDD before, and files that were contained in folders).
What's the problem??

could be a creation date, might want to check the drive in Windows and verify the files creation date arent later then the current date.

You can try a terminal command:
cd /the/path/to/your/problem/files
mkdir fixed
for i in *.* ; do
cat "$i" > "fixed/$i"

definitely a permissions issue since the app used to allow writing to the NTFS volume is not 100% supported on Mac (obviously since OSX does not write to NTFS).
