Your question is too vague to give a solid answer, but, just backup and
restore with a tool (NOT ssh, tar, etc...) that supports EA.  If your
source filesystem is a Samba system then using star in exustar mode
should work.  If you are coming from a real Windows box then you
probably need to backup and restore with a Windows utility.
