right now is if I want to merge changes from the trunk to MyBranch, it
wants to delete Folder2 every time. I could allow it to delete and then
copy the folder back in manually, but then I think I lose my revision

Yes. You can do a record only.
Let's say you removed the Folder2 in revision 15. In the branch merge
from trunk but just select revision 15 for merge. Just before the merge
(In the Merge options) select 'Only record the merge'. Execute the merge
and commit into the branch.

SVN internally administrated the merge has been executed, but it
actually didn't merge the changes. Therefore it doesn't want to merge
the changes again. So in future merges you don't have to worry revision
15 is merged and removes Folder2.
