Question:

Sometimes when I run the IMPORT function in the IDEAL Source Transport Utility IDUTSTRN, some existing resources are deleted. Is there a way to avoid the deletion of existing resources?

Answer:

When you import resources that already exists the action is specified using the SET IMPORT DUPLICATE command. 

SET IMPORT DUPLICATE REPLACE will replace the old entity with the new one in TEST status. 

SET IMPORT DUPLICATE NEXT will keep the existing entity and create one the next version.

See SET IMPORT DUPLICATE Command in DocOps.
