  • WinRAR sold 5,449 licenses in a day
    In a similar vein to WinRAR, there’s BetterZip for macOS users: It’s nice. I got it in a cheap Mac software bundle many moons ago and ended up upgrading to the latest version. Daily driver as far as GUI is concerned. - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
  • First time Mac - open for any tips for a longterm windows user | MBP14 M1Pro/32GB/512GB/10C/16C
    5.) alternative to Keka: a free/paid named BetterZip - Source: over 1 year ago
  • what are the apps that you guys love that u cant use your mac without?
    BetterZip for other instances dealing with archives where "decompress the whole thing" is a hassle. Source: over 1 year ago
  • how do in encrypt files?
    Everyone has their personal favorite. Check out BetterZip, Keka or my favorite, MacZip. It is a matter of personal taste. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Keka macOS File Archiver
    i've been a betterzip user for years and never had a need to look elsewhere. Source: about 2 years ago
  • WinRAR alternative for macOS? To browse through the content of the archive?
    If you want an archive viewer with a file manager, try BetterZip. If you need to get a look at its supported archive formats, that's here:. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Deleting every archive file after the file was unzipped
    Your simplest bet in this case will likely be to use a zip utility with a file browser, and ideally one that supports QuickLook, so you can preview individual files before extracting them. I've used BetterZip for ages. I'm not sure if there's a similar freeware app that will do everything BetterZip will. Source: about 2 years ago
  • [META] Can we add a section on the wiki with useful apps?
    BetterZip: in Mac, you can’t natively preview zip files without uncompressing, Betterzip gives you that ability. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Corrupt Files
    Do you have the zip files still? If so, try unzipping them with another tool like The Unarchiver or BetterZip. Any difference? We've seen that the built-in OS unzip tools on both Mac and Windows aren't always very robust and can have difficulties with ZIP-64. Source: about 3 years ago
