Why doesn't File Explorer warn when deleting or moving folders??

I represent a large hospital staff that are not computer experts and who share a large folder filled with dozens of subfolders. I am repeatedly called to find a critical folder that was accidentally dragged into another folder. It should be obvious that in these situations file explorer should warn users when: 1. They delete a folder; 2. They move a folder. IMO this should be the default action independent of any user permission levels as these events are pretty rare (at least in my 25yrs experience). The best option IMO would be to have a setting in File Explorer that defaults to enabling these warnings but could be turned off: [X] warn when moving or deleting folders. Thanks for any consideration or solutions I may have missed.
