Sorry for the lack of a response on this - I think this fell through the cracks because no one has worked directly on the FTP import backend for a long time. I did have need for a configuration value to prevent Galaxy from deleting files as you requested and implemented that today.
It has been merged into dev and should be included in Galaxy 16.07 this summer (a freeze on features for 16.04 was issued last week).
As for cleaning things out after three days - that hasn't been implemented but it would be best implemented outside of Galaxy with cron job or a tool such as tmpreaper.

is there any option to not remove files that has been imported to Galaxy from FTP directory and to not remove files that haven't been imported since 3 days?
I would be grateful if someone from developers would be so kind to address this issue as it is quite important for our users.
