Bigger issue is Keka creates hidden sub-folders in the folder where it extracts the archives. If there are multiple archives to extract, Keka would create multiple subfolders. The folders are in format such as .Keka-B6ED7BEE-E249-4A01-111E-C709A5A1129A. As it's hidden you don't see the folder unless you change finder to show hidden files. The issue is not only are these folder like "garbage", but some of them would contain partial files where extraction failed. I was wondering why an empty folder still shows size in several MBs. Well it's because Keka created number of these hidden folders and it doesn't delete them after it finishes or after it closes down. I don't think I can continue using the app at this time.

Why not configure Keka to use standard Cache locations on OSX so that the garbage gets deleted?

The issue may be related to when Keka stops operation, extraction is not successful or when the user stops the extraction manually.

I'm not crazy for the bug icon :)
There is small issue with Keka when dealing with partially corrupted archives (or archives where part of the archive is missing.. The issue is if part of the archive is corrupt, Keka will offer no remedy on its own, it will show error message and completely stops without attempting to extract the rest of the archive packages (which don't have any issues).
In such a situation I would end up using The Archiver.

I hate to tell this but because I bought it on the app store it gets updated regularly and I haven't had any problems. I can archive and extract 7zip files on the fly. It seems faster than the regular mac archiver.

Nice little app, just what I wanted — a way to ZIP files without those DS_Store files cluttering things up for Windows users.

Growl support was a nice little bonus.

Thanks!

Must have utility.
