In what context?

While looping through a list of files and deleting all of them except for a specific file? Sure.

Actively monitoring a folder and magically detecting if a file gets deleted? No, that's absurd and no such software exists for that anywhere regardless of language.

File and Folder permissions are all controlled by the ACL for that file or folder. It should be easy enough to remove the file or folder permissions for standard users from deleting a file with ICACLS.exe but Administrators normally have full rights to do what they want. You could use ICACLS to remove the administrators from deleting the file or folder as well but I wouldn't recommend it.
