Is there a way to keep Safari from deleting zip files?

    I read this on a site:

    "Safari automatically cleans up after itself when downloading file. It deletes the original archive so all you get is the fully decompressed file."

    I have the problem that it always deletes the zip files I download after it extracts them... I can't find a way to turn it off... anyone know a work around? I know its not Stuffit that is doing it, I double checked the "delete archive after extraction" was not set...

    Thanks in advance.

    That's weird, it never deletes them on my system.

    In Safari -> Preferences -> General, make sure "Open 'safe' files after downloading" is not checked.
