If you have administrative rights to this folder, right-hand click on the folder, go to Security and edit his permissions.

If you don't, then you will need to speak to your administrator.

If all you want is the non-deletion of folders or files, deselect Modify.

Since you're dealing with PDF files, I assume the user only needs to Read & Execute.  But, if you are editing these files then you have to grant Modify rights, which allows deletion.  The solution would be to grant Modify rights, then go to the Advanced Rights and deselect Delete but leave everything else.  That way a user can edit the file, save changes, but cannot actually remove the file.

HTH.
