You cannot set passwords on a shared folder, but you can edit the NTFS-permissions so that users cannot delete stuff.

Set the advanced NTFS security permissions to an explicit deny for the groups / users you do not want to be able to delete (or just untick the full control and untick the delete-option).

or leave premission as they are and use this  http://www.piriform.com/recuva to recover files and folders structure - i just did - no problems with recovery (you have to recovery it to different partition)
