    Hello, regarding Sandboxie, i have 3 boxes, for different users.
    I am the only admin account. In the boxes used by other users, programs are forced and no recovery is allowed. I have locked the configuration, so the other users ( limited accounts ) cannot disable forced programs or make any alterations.
    I thought I had things locked down, then it occured to me, they can simply right click on firefox and choose to run it from my box , and so recover files. Is there anyway to stop them running programs in my box.
    Thank you very much

    Hi mick

    You could set the only folder available for recovery in your box as one with only write permissions for you as administrator. Then re-lock your SB configuration.

    Then, even if other users use your sandbox, they won't be able to recover to that folder as they won't have write permission - given that they're non-admin.

    I haven't tried this, but that would do the trick, wouldn't it?

    I think they can also work around your aims by downloading the file (to a location that's not blocked) and then just use Explorer to retrieve it directly from within C:\Sandbox. Can you actually prevent this?
