Match ntfs permissions from old drive to new one

Hi everyone,
I did upgraded to a bigger raid on one of our servers, and did a robocopy from the old raid volume. The problem is all the data moved over fine, but none of the permissions carried over. Is there a way I can copy only the permissions from the old volume? I have to have this up by monday morning so doing a re-copy is out of the question.

You should have run the initial robocopy with the "/copy:DATS" or "/copyall".
To re-apply the permissions, run the command you used to transfer the data again, but add
/copy:s /is
to the command line. /copy:s will copy (only) the security information, "/is" will include same files, otherwise robocopy would just skip over the existing files.
How large was the original array? Why don't you just restore from a backup? That should be the fasted method by far.
