Permission Issue With FreeFileSync

i've been using freefilesync since i was on windows 10 to backup my browser profiles and settings folders from a couple of other applications, and never had an issue with it till today. i moved some partitions yesterday and took ownership again, tested that it was working fine by copying to and from them. did that without issue, but when i ran freefilesync i got the below. opened terminal and redid taking ownership and still get the same thing. i spent the last 2 days going though everything and making sure that i have everything i want to keep backed up, making screenshots of my setup, getting a proper list of my installed programs cause i planned on resetting my ssd today and giving the entire drive to kubuntu instead of kubuntu and neon. for now i can just manually backup the folds, but i would like to have a fix for this for the os refresh. please any idea what's going on? thanks
