Share permissions can't be migrated directly, since they are managed by the OS and not the actual file partitions. That said, the typical best practice for share permissions is to grant full access to the Authenticated Users group. This allows anyone to communicate with the share, but whatever permissions are set on the files themselves will prevent unauthorized access. The most restrictive set of permissions always wins, so setting the share permissions to grant full access to all Authenticated Users will keep you from having to manage two separate sets of permissions on the same folder.
