For example if you want to Copy "Wrkgrps" folder from oldFileServer to NewFileServer and have a log file:
robocopy \\oldFileServer\Wrkgrps \\NewFileServer\Wrkgrps /s /e /zb /xo /r:1 /w:0 >wrkgrps.txt

Addition to above, use robocopy first to copy everything over, then use permcopy to copy the share permissions. The destination share must already exist, but robocopy will do that for you.

Robocopy and permcopy are available in : http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17657

Permcopy - Copy share & file ACLs from one share to another.

Robocopy- By default Robocopy will only copy a file if the source and destination have different time stamps or different file sizes.  By copying only the files that have changed, robocopy can be used to backup very large volumes. To limit the network bandwidth used by robocopy
