You can use GetAccessControl to return DirectorySecurity about one directory and then use that in your call to CreateDirectory.
The example below obtains the security from the folder C:\Test then creates a new directory with the same security named C:\Test2

Dim dirSecurity As System.Security.AccessControl.DirectorySecurity = System.IO.Directory.GetAccessControl("c:\test")
System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory("c:\test2", dirSecurity)

Open in new window
