Default has origin been fixed for game installer saves?|

Does anyone know if EA's Origin has been fixed in the sense that game installers actually save when check the check box under application settings. Hence, can you backup your digital online purchases like you can with steam with the recent changes to Origin? Because I have checked that checkbox and checked the directory after installing Crysis 3 for instance and there is nothing in the installer directory. Please help.

I'm not 100% sure they fixed it.

I've always just saved the entire directory to a USB HDD. After a reinstall I jut copy it all back across the Origin usually just sees the directory and installs without downloading it all again.
