Failed to enable ownership

I know there are several old posts about this, but none have helped fix the issue on my end. In the past most SD issues have been relatively easy to solve, but this one is persistent.

I tried many times last night to backup to an external WD Passprt drive that I've used a long time for backups. Kept getting the ownership warning for both bootable partitions.

I ran DiskUtility and DiskWarrior (including permissions repair), then rebooted.
I also deleted volinfo.database on both partitions.

Finally gave up and used CarbonCopyCloner, and it completed the job without a hitch.
