In order to prevent the deletion of a folder (or file, program, etc.) in Windows, locate the folder with the find function or with Windows Explorer, right click or select the File menu, select Properties, then click the Read-Only box. Files can still be saved to or deleted from the folder, but if you try to delete the folder it will warn you that the folder is read-only.
