Randomly trying to decompress instead of compress a folder #425

Ever since of June 25th update, when I run a service to compress a folder with Keka, for some reason it chooses to extract instead of compress a folder. Since an ordinary folder cannot be extracted, I am getting an error message saying "Extraction of failed". Where "" is a the name of the folder I was trying to compress.

Under Preferences, I have "Perform automatic action" selected under General > Actions.

How do I stop Keka from trying to extract a non-archive folder and instead compress it as it is meant to do.

Before the update of June 25th, this has never happened to me, and now it happens approx. every 4th time I try to compress a folder.

Here is a screenshot of the error. I was trying to compress a folder named "IT" and Keka actually chose to extract it even though it is not an archive Screenshot 2019-07-05 at 10 54 00

This is really strange. No changes had been made in the Keka services. Just to be sure, you said you're using those services, right?

Can you try to close Keka, remove its preferences and see if this happens again?
