Yes ... give them read-only access , if you want them to be able to write and create files , then setup customized NTFS permissions and make sure that you deny "delete" permission.

Thanks for the update can you explain more clearly how I'd do this pls? They need to be able to create folders and also copy files into these folders, but not delete.
Brad HoweCommented:

1. Open IIS Manager and assign the directory the proper permissions in the HOME    
    DIRECTORY TAB. This should be READ & WRITE if you still want to allow then to upload files.

2. Now right click on the same folder (Root or the virtual folder) and select
    (Permissions...).   This will bring up the NTFS Permisssions window on the acutual
    folder level.

3. Select the user OR group in the list.

4. Click Advanced.

5. Select the user OR group again in the Permissions Entries list.

6. Click Edit

7. In the Permissions Entry for "Your folder", Set the following to deny.
     Delete subfolders and Files                     [x] Deny
     Delete                                                   [x] Deny

8. Click OK x 3
