Errors when backing up files

I am running ubuntu MATE 16.04 and getting errors while using backup program under accessories. I do not have permission to open /home/don/.cache/dconf and /home/don/.gvfs.
Is this normal?

ouroumov@Box:~$ ls -alh .cache/ | grep dconf
drwx------  2 root     root     4,0K mai    1 00:10 dconf

Directories owned by root in user’s $HOME folders. I would also like to know why.
