Is it possible to set permissions on a dropbox.  For example, I want to allow one user to create documents, but not be able to delete them.  

Is that possible?  If not, what would work?

Are you talking about the program Dropbox?
Or just a folder?

Well, that dont work, because you would need to have that option in the program itself.
You cannot add permissions in computer folder, so i dont think you have many options for doing that.

The alternatives for Dropbox are:

SugarSync:
Gives you 5GB of free storage and works pretty much like Dropbox, except for a few differences, including setting read-only permissions and the ability to sync any folder you want on your computer. You can also set a shared folder to require a password, so users will need both the link and the password to open.

Box.net
Gives users 5GB of free personal web storage and can sync to the desktop. All users have to permission levels available: read/write access (Editor) and full read access (Viewer). The Viewer access allows users to download items, share, and comment on them—but not upload or edit items in the folder. There are more permissions levels available in the Business and Enterprise versions of Box.net, which seems more suited for collaboration than many other file syncing/storage tools.
