I have lost very important personal folders and would like to avoid that
happening again. Is there a way to password protect to avoid deleting a
personal folder when I meant to delete an email.

Not and then I leave a personal folder hilighted when I am deleting an email
and then it is moved to the deleted folder but if I don't catch it when I
empty that folder I can lose and have lost years of history.

Simple, you keep basckups
The MS site has a free MS outlook backup addin

And what are you doing keeping 'years of history' in a single data file,
have you not looked at Archive?
The backup addin also backs up Archives
