In theory, I like the function by which Safari downloads a .dmg file and then automatically opens it & deletes it when completed...<br><br>However, some times I want to save the .dmg files, either for a re-install later or just for archival purposes... To do this, though, I have to go into Safari prefs and uncheck the 'Open safe files' option. The files are preserved now, but then of course they don't automatically open!<br><br>Any way to have my cake & eat it too?<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a </font color=red> <br>

For some odd reason Disk Copy will not automatically close the window when it's done mounting an image, so Safari never has a chance to delete it. Not that this will help you in anyway, but if you were able to do that in disk copy's prefs. it might work.<br><br>"If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something. "

It is not safari it is disk copy doing it, if there is only one file it assumes it is an installer and doesn't keep the archive.<br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman<br>

I have all my downloaded files go into a download folder on my desktop. The dmg files are still mounted after they download and the mounted file stays on my desktop until I move it to the trash.<br>However, the download folder still has the unmounted dmg file, so I can save it if I need it again.<br>I also do have "open safe files" checked off<br><br><br>[color:red]Listen...</font color=red>
