Request: verify archive feature

Post by fuzznitz » Thu Jul 31, 2014 8:15 pm

Hi, I LOVE Keka, great app! I use it for archiving music sessions to my server.

I backup my files to a Drobo on my mini server. Files deleted from this disk skip the trashcan and are instantly deleted. Because of this its a little scary to check the box in Keka to automatically delete the source files when I'm not sure the created archive is sound. Hence my desire to verify all created archives BEFORE deleting the source files (my only copies).

When I archive a folder with Keka to DMG, my workflow is > archive to DMG > run OSX Disk Utility > drag dmg to Disk Utility, verify DMG, remove DMG from disk utility, delete source files used to create said DMG. If Keka had an option to verify DMG after creating the DMG, then I'd feel more comfortable checking the box to delete source files after compressing. This would greatly increase my workflow and confidence!

Requested workflow within Keka would be
  • Create DMG
    Verify DMG
    If verification passes... Delete Source Files
Thanks much, great app guys!

This is a great idea, in fact.
