temp file location on extraction

Post by gc38169223 » Tue May 05, 2020 8:46 am

i was extracting a file to the local hard drive and got a running out of hard disk space notification. the extraction process stopped halfway, but now I've got very little space left on the hard drive. is the half-extracted file somewhere on the drive that I can get to and delete restore the free space?

help!

Hi! If they were leftovers closing and opening Keka shoud fix them... If you still think there's a file there, press Shift + Command + . (dot), you'll see then the hidden files. Keka creates a hidden file named like ".Keka-XXX...". If you see one of this you can safely remove them.

Let me know if that is the case...

Glad to help! The upcoming version will show those temporary files, so this does not happen again:
