Does Sandboxie allow the programs running inside the DefaultBox to delete files from the file system (or if not by default, is there an option for this)?
If not, are there any alternatives where I can prevent file deletion?
(Using Windows 7 (32 bit) operating system.)

You cannot prevent file deletion but you can block all access to that folder(s). We are talking about file deletion inside the sandbox right?

Sandboxie uses a configuration file where it stores all settings to your sandboxes. That file is located under C:\windows\sandboxie.ini

Each sandbox starts with parentheses. For example: [DefaultBox]

[DefaultBox]
ClosedFilePath=!iexplore.exe,%Favorites%

The above means that every other program except internet explorer is denied access to the favorites folder.

Or you can just block the entiore folder, like this: ClosedFilePath=%Favorites%
