Folder option to allow only admins or owners to rename or delete a folder.

I'd love to have a possibility to 'lock' chosen folders to prevent accidental move, rename or delete of folder.

Live example - at work we have a folder containing all our jobs folders and it happened a few times, that someone accidentally moved a folder to other location causing massive problems for the rest of the team working in the same folder.

It would be great to have an option in "folder properties", like: Allow only administrators (or administrators and owners) to delete, rename, or move this folder.
