We have about 3 TB worth of files/folders that were moved to another storage server (Windows), but now all of the file Labels that were color coded are now gone.  Is there any way to recover that?  If they are copied from a Mac instead of from the Windows server, would that help?

I don't believe that the labels will translate to another machine. The colors and definition of each label are specific to the original machine. If you define them as such on another Mac then you could retain them if you moved to that Mac. I don't know if the info is still there and would restore by moving them back to the original Mac. I am fairly certain though that there's nothing analogous on the Windows side. I may be wrong about this though.
