Copy permissions only after initial copy

I mirrored a folder from my pc to another one but forgot to choose copy permissions and this folder is about (20 G), it contains thousands of small files and I don't need to recopy the whole folder again. How can I copy only the permissions without having to copy the whole folder again?

Hi Alice
Open the job configuration and let all the choices as it, just go to copy flag and select what you need from "NTFS Security " and rerun the job, the mirror will skip files that have not been modified, so it will then copy permissions but skip the files since they were not modified.
