Protection from accidental deletion (Windows)

Specs: Windows Server 2008
Does anyone know of a software that can be installed on a windows server 2008 file server, that will require any user to input a passcode before the file is actually deleted?

There is none because it is built into Windows. Just go to the share and for that Users Group or that User and add the Modify permission. Then under the Domain User group remove the delete permission so that only members of that group can delete files from that share.

Can you be more specific as to what problem you are trying to solve?

I am well aware of how permissions work with the windows environment, more specifically the special permissions. I have tried removing the delete permissions to those specific users, though realized when i did that, they were unable to rename any files. This is not practical. I'll try to be more precise on what I need... My client has about 10 users that share files amongst one another. Every other week that passes by, I receive a phone call/email request about lost/deleted files, and realized that someone had ended up deleting a file by accident. Instead having to recover these files every time they have this issue, might there be a software that would lock down a folder of files from deletion? And only allow the deletion of those files if one obtains a passcode? Or maybe theres another way about this? Thanks for your time.
