Extracting multiple archives with same password

Post by babmo » Thu Feb 13, 2020 5:28 pm

Is there a way to input the same password for multiple archives? Currently when I extract file.part1.rar file.part2.rar etc. I have to input (the same) password for every file. With The Unarchiver I could input one, and it would extract all files. Is it possible with Keka? Thanks! :)

babmo, with Keka you only need to drop one of those parted files, it will extract the whole thing. So you only need to pass for example the file.part1.rar and it extract the rest of the parts for you.

That does not work like that for you?

Ah sorry, yes it does, I was distracted while writing. I meant something else: multiple unrelated archives file1.rar file2.rar with the same password. I believe the Unarchiver managed that as well. Can Keka do that?

The current stable version does not, but you can try the upcoming 1.2.0 version that already has this feature: https://beta.keka.io

Let me know if works for you!
