Other Keka features
In addition, the application has a number of convenient options, such as password protection of a compressed file or dividing an archived file into parts, and by “cutting” the compressed file, you can specify the desired size for each of the divided volumes.
Keka can be selected as the default system archiver, which will save time unpacking files by providing instant response to double-click (additional system files need to be installed).
With the help of the settings, you can determine the optimal conditions for archiving data for yourself and install the so-called automatic archive.
The main criteria by which the merit of this application can be assessed is its large-scale functional base, convenience and ease of use.
You can download the Keka archiver for free on the developer’s website or donate 379 rubles by downloading the application in the Mac App Store.
