Is there a way to retrieve the IDs of deleted folders? We are trying to use download_zip on some deleted folders and it cannot find deleted folders by path.  Are there any alternatives to downloading deleted folders without restoring them?

The Dropbox API doesn't return the file/folder ID for DeletedMetadata, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

The /2/files/download and /2/files/download_zip endpoints don't support downloading deleted files/folders though, nor is there another way to do so, so you'd need to restore anything you want to download first anyway. I'll send this along as a feature request as well. I can't promise if or when these might be implemented though.
