Moving compressed/zipped files?

Downloading frebies has eaten my hard drive space (the C drive that is). Once I've unzipped a freebie so that there's now a zipped file and a file folder with the same name in My Library is it safe to move to a different drive or delete the zipped/compresed file so it's no longer taking up room, or does DS need the zipped file in My Library in order for the prop /freebie to work?

In other words, when I'm loading a prop into DS, does it access or use the compressed/zipped folder or just the unzipped file folder that has the same name?

I hope this question is clear, I'm not good when it comes to messing with files.

    DS only uses the unzipped contents of the folder.

    You can safely delete the zipped file. I only save the zipped file to an external drive if I want to keep it as it will take up less room.

    Cheers for the quick reply. That's just the answer I was hoping for.

    Also thanks for making freebie clothes for Genesis, I've been using them quite a bit.
