I use tar to compress/uncompress /home folders and subfolders into a 
tar-file and after uncompressing, all the permissions were kept the same. I 
use the same method to restore home profile for each user (preconfigured) 
with the help of post-session script :)

I think it may work with your problem as well but to be safe, uncompress 
them into a different location and see if it works.
