Is there anything safety lock like feature for psd file to preserved its original file? I have free mock ups psd file from graphic design community site, I always use them, but some time I accidentally save the psd file (overwrite the mock up psd), resulting mess mock up and I will need to download the mock up again from the site.

    You could change the file to read only in mac finder or windows explorer. It will prevent any changes to the file. – Joonas May 4 '15 at 8:42

File >> Save As...

1: Whenever you download a file you can immediately make a copy and rename it according to your project.

2: Or after opening the PSD do a File > > Save As... then name it appropriately.

    Be aware that while self-promotion is absolutely fine within your profile, it is highly discouraged in answers unless it directly relates to the actual answer. Randomly throwing in your web site link is frowned upon and doing it repeatedly may be seen as advertising. – Scott May 4 '15 at 6:33
