Question regarding saving program files

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but here goes:

I have been downloading photoshop and Lightroom software from adobe. It is literally taking days to complete. Is there any way that I can save these files to an external hard drive so that I won't have to go thru this again if my laptop fails? IF so, how would I go about it?

I'm running windows 8.

Thanks

Just save the installer package.

If it is an automated installer that you download a smaller file and then it download the big file, it would be a bit difficult to save the big file. If you download the huge file directly then you can do just like the Major said, save to an external drive or you can burn to a dvd/bluray for storage too.

it was possible to keep both installation packages a couple of years ago... unfortunately, since adobe released adobe creative cloud, now there is a single installer, which gives you access to all adobe programs...
