You might take a look at Chronosync from Econ Technology. I see the price has gone up to $40 dollars, but once you buy a license you can update forever. I recently wrote them to get a new license and they sent me one with no problem (do save the email they send you, my email address has changed several times over the years, but with a copy of my previous emails from them everything was fine).
I just now used it to sync a folder in my home directory to the FAT32 drive I share with my Vista installation. You can customize things any way want: synchronize deletions or not, and many other options as well. When you run a particular sync of a folder you save it, then the next time you want to do the same thing just double click the saved sync file. It is incredibly fast when you do it that way.
You might also consider a MobileMe (a.k.a. "Dot Mac") account. It isn't free ($99/year), but includes all sorts of things in addition to a synchronization system and 20 gb of space on Apple's servers (your "iDisk").
I haven't used it, so can't answer about the deleted file situation, but the basic scoop is at: http://www.apple.com/support/mobileme/
There's also a separate section of these forums for MobileMe, that might be worth a visit, at: http://discussions.apple.com/category.jspa?categoryID=116
