Copy only security on folders to new server?

I just got done doing a migration from a 2003 to 2008 server.  I used Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery to migrate our main data folder and then used SyncBack to do the "final" data copy.  Unfortunately now two days into production, I notice that SyncBack wiped ALL of the security on my folders, basically giving everyone access to everything within this folder.  Is there any way I can run a script or something to copy over JUST the folder security without overwriting any data that was changed in the last two days?  I'm aware of xcopy /o/x/e/h/k, but unfortunately that will overwrite said data.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

I think robocopy should be able to do that: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323275
