More specifically, use the MS File Server MIgration Toolkit which will move all shares with permissions for you.

RoboCopoy is a CLI free program from Microsoft in the Windows Resource Kit, and there is a free gui available if you prefer.

NTBackup can do it as well

Backing up and restoring will move the NTFS permissions, though not the share perms. Most folks do share permissions as everyone/full anyhow, and just use NTFS to regulate access.
