I'm using Robocopy and double checking with Total Commander. Both tools can copy permissions.
Robocopy is free and Total Commander personal licence costs 42 US$. After registration, all future updates can be downloaded for free.

or use Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit.

These tools does not transfer share's permission. You can do it manually or you can use permcopy.exe from Windows server 2003 Tools. Here is interesting how to restore share to another server by registry restoring - https://support.microsoft.com/EN-US/kb/141589

Thanks Tomas Valenta. Saw just this "move my data permissions ". It's too early for me ^^

According to Microsoft best practices, you should not create the Share's to complex.
They recommend you to just give Everyone all permissions:

Share Permissions
They recommend you also to control it by NTFS permissions.
