We did a robocopy this past weekend and we also ran a full backup from Backup exec and I wanted to know where I could restore the permissions for folders from within these backups?

Did you use Robocopy's /copy:S option or the /SEC or /COPYALL option? These cause the ACLs to be copied.

If you did, you can use
robocopy source destination /secfix /xo /xn /xc

Open in new window

see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323275 to copy the permissions back.
If not, it could be a bit tricky...
