Windows will allow you to manage just the delete permission. If you need that level of control, check out 'icacls'. Something like the following may work for you:

icacls<filename> /deny<user or SID>:D

Doesn't help in Cygwin if the user is admin. Think SE_BACKUP_PRIVILEGE.

Ah yes. And the OP said dropping this privilege for the user was a non-starter for some reason. OK, I'm out of ideas.
