Keka for Mac is a useful and easy-to-use macOS file compression software and also provides the backup application for managing all aspects of compressed files on your desktop or Finder windows. With features such as multiple file compression, support for every major compression format, drag and drop interface, the tool definitely deserves to find a place on your dock or main window. To make the app even more attractive to both novices and professionals, this 100% free app has wide compatibility for both compressing and extracting archive formats, but you have to be aware that not all extraction formats are also supported for compression. In addition to popular formats such as ZIP, RAR, and 7-Zip, Keka for macOS can also manage popular CD/DVD disc image archives made with ISO format, which is excellent news for disc collectors who want to take advantage of faster disc loading using CD/DVD virtual drives.
Based on the p7zip port of the 7-zip open source project, the Keka macOS application offers you the possibility to quickly create file archives (7z, ISO, DMG, TAR, ZIP, Bzip2, or Gzip) that have a high compression ratio.
At the same time, Keka can also be used to extract files from various types of archives, such as RAR, 7z, Lzma, xz, ZIP, TAR, CAB, PAX, ACE, ISO, Bzip, or Gzip.
Extracting files is 100% seamless, with direct integration for both Desktop, Dock and Finder. All major formats of archives can be manipulated and extracted by simply double-clicking on them, or dropping them on the Keka icon on Dock or main window. With such ease of use, you cannot go wrong by picking the app as your main archive-manipulating utility.
The file archiver can be installed for free and used without any restrictions on Mac OS 10.5 or newer (the older legacy version is still available to be used on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). The app does not feature subscriptions, single time purchase, unlocking, or any in-app features, and does not have in-app advertisements. Developers of this app only accept donations that keep this project alive and on track to receive any future updates.
Keka main window you have the option to select the compression method you want to use and make the necessary adjustments. All you have to do next is drag and drop the files you want to archive on top of the app’s interface or icon, and Keka takes care of the rest.
By default, Keka will place the archive in the same folder with the source files, but via the Preferences window, you get to define a custom output location or choose to be prompted in each case. Using the latter option might be advisable since you will also have the option to add custom names to the archives.
