Queuing Compression?

Postby LChackr » Sat Jun 02, 2018 9:02 pm

Hi all,

First of all, thanks for all the hard work on Keka!

Is it possible to queue multiple separate archives to be compressed in the same way that Keka automatically queues multiple archives being expanded?

Example: If I drag 10 compressed archives onto Keka it queues them and expands them in order. However if I do the same thing with 10 files I need to compress it creates 10 new threads. I would like it to behave the same way as it does with expanding the archives.

This multiple simultaneous compression is a problem especially for larger files and folders (>500MB) because the compression process will consume all RAM and drive all CPU cores to 100%. I'd rather have the option to trade the speed of compression for the ability to have it run in the background and not use all system resources.

Thanks again

Hi LChackr!

Already scheduled this one for 1.2.0 version, take a look at: https://github.com/aonez/Keka/issues/21

I'll give priority to this feature, since it's very asked and necessary.
