When you download and image and extract it do you keep the zipped folder or do you keep the unzipped folder as a backup.

I have been downloading images for my Cameo and I have so many zipped files. I am unsure how to organize things. Some told me not to delete as they are my back up files. So do I keep both or just the unzipped folder. TIA

I unzip, delete the zip file, put the image on my permanent back-up drive, and put a copy in my everyday working folders. I just find browsing through zipped files to be irritating. Whether you keep a back-up copy as a zip file or not, it's still a back-up copy, so it's really up to you

I keep both but I have a folder for zipped files within my folder for "digital downloads".....
It is a backup for me so I put it away where I don't have to deal with it but I don't delete it.
