Keka v1.1.29
Keka v1.1.29 -the macOS file archiver Store more, share with privacy So simple, so strong You do not even need to open Keka to compress a file, keep it in your dock and use it from there. Just drag and drop your files and folders to the Dock icon or the Keka window to create a slimmer version of them. Privacy is very important Share safely just setting a password and creating highly encrypted files. Using AES-256 encryption specification for your 7z files and Zip 2.0 legacy encryption specification for your Zip files. Still too big... If the files are really huge and they do not fit your mail or server, just split them into pieces. Don't worry, they will still expand to produce your original file :) Keka can create files in these formats: 7Z ZIP TAR GZIP BZIP2 XZ LZIP DMG ISO And extract all of these formats: 7Z ZIP ZIPX RAR TAR GZIP BZIP2 XZ LZIP DMG ISO LZMA EXE CAB WIM PAX JAR WAR IPA APK APPX XPI CPGZ CPIO Requires Mac OS X 10.9 or newer MD5: f1c1a2f7806308e3d3af68488e76457a Changes in version 1.1.29 5/18/2020 Fixed split size when using Simplified Chinese translation (Thanks to @yanshenxian) #558 Spanish translation updated by @kant #553 Click here to visit the author's website.

TC4Shell v17.9.10
TC4Shell v17.9.10 TC4Shell is the perfect tool for opening an enormous range of archive types such as ZIP, RAR and 7Z, directly in Windows Explorer. Got tired of keeping multiple applications for 7-ZIP, RAR and ISO on your PC? Want to open all archive formats directly in Windows Explorer? Or feeling uncomfortable without your favorite WCX plug-ins for Total Commander? If yes, then TC4Shell will fit just fine! TC4Shell is a file archiver which makes things as simple as possible, but not simpler. Thanks to its core feature – ultimate integration with Windows Explorer – you will be able to handle archives and disk images just like regular folders. Everything you might need when dealing with archives is now right within reach: copy/paste, drag&amp;drop, running executables directly from archives, as well as working with nested archives and self-extracting (SFX) packages. In addition, TC4Shell enables you with easy, yet convenient, password manager and package profiles. If you often send or receive password-protected archives, you can set up passwords for encryption and then simply pick them up from the TC4Shell's dialog box when packing files. The same mechanism also applies to package profiles – simply configure compression parameters, such as compression level and method, and then re-use them by picking up the corresponding profile. Cheap and cheerful! And finally, if you want to extend TC4Shell functionality, feel free to download and install your favorite archive plug-ins for Total Commander. Or, if you ever chance upon 7-ZIP archives created with a different codec (such as ZStandard or LZHAM), this codec can be downloaded and used in TC4Shell as well. By default, TC4Shell supports a broad range of archive formats and disk images: 7Z archive 7z, 7zip ZIP archive zip, zipx RAR archive rar CAB archive cab SQX archive sqx TAR archive tar GZIP archive gz, gzip, gz, tgz BZIP2 archive bz2, bzip2, bz2, tb2, tbz, tbz2 ISO disc image iso, udf WIM disk image wim TC4Shell works on all ...

Universal Extractor 2 v2.0.0 RC3
Universal Extractor 2 v2.0.0 RC3 Universal Extractor is a powerful and well-known tool to extract files from hundreds of different archive types, installers or otherwise compressed files. It has been created and maintained by Jared Breland until he set it on hiatus after the release of version 1.6.1. Currently, there are several slightly updated modifications floating around, which consist mainly of helper binary updates. Additionally, some improved versions with auto-updaters, more supported file types and GUI redesigns exist. Sadly, these are scattered around the internet and no central and easy download packages are available. As a user you would have to search through many forums in a wide variety of languages to even find a link to the program. Universal Extractor 2 is the most advanced inofficial modification around, aiming at the inclusion of many wanted features, improvement of current ones, ongoing support and a central open-source distribution. UniExtract 2 started as a simple modification disabling the always-on-top status box and ended with the addition of dozens of extractors to expand the range of supported file types. New - and unique amongst the available modifications - features like a scan-only mode to identify unknown file types using multiple scanning applications, the batch mode or the extraction of audio and video tracks from multimedia files make it stand out against these. As a short overview here is a list of the core improvements: Batch mode Silent mode, not showing any prompts Scan only mode to determine file types without extracting Integrated updater 100+ new supported file types Audio and video extraction for multimedia files Cascading context menu Support for password list for common archives Improved optional ...
