Keka is a Mac OSX GUI for p7zip (7-zip/7zip port), Unrar and Unace. Keka tries to be the easiest and quickest archiver for Mac.
- Drag and drop compression
- Password encription
- Split files
UPDATE: Ok, I realized the files are zero bytes, but you can still see all the file names, folders, etc. This is still very dangerous. When I use the 7z format I can encrypt the names though. I think it is not something related to Keka to encrypt the file names in zip format. That's why I will change my rating to 5 star. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I have been using this archiver for the last one month and I back up several different projects every few days with password. I enter the password, drag and drop the folder to Keka and it archives them, perfect right? WRONG! None of them were password protected after all, I just realized it today by pure luck. I was testing one of my files and entered the password wrong and an unarchived folder still appeared. I clicked on it and the files were there! Isn't that supposed to be password protected? If it is going to unarchive the files even if I enter the password wrong it is ridiculous. I uninstalled it right away.
Works ok, but sorry I am going back to old archiver the reason: 5GB of .keka* folders! Sorry I don't want to mess my HDD with the temp files this app creates!
Keka is easy to use and it works perfectly. In my experience it is the best way to create Windows-compatible zip archives on the Mac.
Nice and simple.
Easy to install and use.
