Migrated a share with robocopy Destination ends up being read only

I'm trying to migrate a share from a old fileserver to a windows server 2008. I use robocopy to copy and it seems like it copies the permissions and all of the data. I have done this at least 5 times (i checked the permissions and everything looks the same as the source share) The problem is That the destination will become read only and i cannot take it off read only.

this is how im copying the share

robocopy C:\source D:\destination /mir /sec /r:1 /w:1

ive also tried it with /secfix ive also tried /a-:r

same result

its kind of like this

What about doing it with xcopy?

xcopy C:\source\*.* D:\destination\ /s/h/r/i/k/e/y/d
