This is a serious bug, as I just found that hundreds of backups I have done are no worthless.
What I just discovered is that Keka is always excluding the resource fork (actually, any non-primary fork) in archives, regardless of the "Exclude Mac resource forks" option (which, as reported in <a href="https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3056263&group_id=275361&atid=1169895">issue 3056263</a> is improperly named for it's functionality).
For Keka to be useful on a Mac OS X system for archiving, it needs to be able to archive and restore all forks a file contains. (A file can contain one or more forks, and not necessarily have either a data or resource fork).
It would be good to have "Exclude Mac resource & other non-data forks" option still, as sometimes you do want to archive only the data forks, such as when sending a document to a Windows user.
