    Yes, I understand. Either Ignore or Exclude. IE seems same with Exclude (now) as with Ignore (before) for these c:\sandbox events.

    Where is your sandbox. D is OEM Recovery, E is Optical.
    I don't have another partition.
    C drive has served my Sandbox for 8 years.

    @guest creates separate partition. It is an added security measure. Something breaks out of C:\Sandbox it is on system partition. Something breaks out of non-system partition, it has a few hurdles to jump in order to mess with system.

    It is on D ; i always create 2 non-system partitions right away after clean-installing any newly bought computers. For me C is a "virgin's temple" that should stay free from penetration :p
    not saying i immediately delete the recovery partition.

    So, I may set Sandbox container on Recovery partition...?
    Had not heard (till now) user setting container on D.
    And what for example goes to non-system partitions.

    My system :

    C : OS and only necessary programs , i have around 10 installed programs max; mostly security softs, Office, etc...
    D : Portables Apps (Cleaners, monitors, media players, etc...) , softwares installers, download Folders, etc...
    E: Medias & Docs (movies, music, pictures, etc...)

    Compartmentalization is security.

    So, path becomes D:\Sandbox\%USER%\%SANDBOX%
    Hmm, Compartmentalization is security and C is a "virgin's temple".

    Jeez, someone needs to tell BRN, with Sandboxie's container on D, no more problem with AppGuard.

    Okay, no Add Folder Exception and I had already added d:\sandbox Yes before reading just D:\
    (I'm using lower case where AppGuard uses lower case e.g., d:\sandbox).
    I'll head scratch why just d:\ vs. d:\sandbox
    I've removed earlier Ignores and Excludes re IE11.
    IE11 sandbox runs with nary a peep from AppGuard.
    Thanks!

    @guest
    I've read 2.2, before...but, until you prompted me. The gist of 2.2 went over-my-head.

    If the sandboxie-folder is on C: (System-Space), there are 2 steps:
    1) The System-Space folder to be moved is added to the list in the User-Space tab, setting the Include flag to Yes in order to guard its executables
    User-Space: c:\Sandbox Include=Yes
    2) The folder is also added as an Exception Folder via the Guarded Apps tab, with the Type flag set to Read/Write in order to unprotect it
    Exception-Folder: C:\Sandbox (Read/Write)

    But if it's located in User-Space D: you don't have to do these steps.
    Edit: Non-system volumes (all except C: ) = User Space

    I've been running with my sandbox folder on c: and it hasn't given me any problems at all. Even with Appguard. Also I don't feel the system is any less safe. But then that's why I do run other layers of protection

    Yes, I'm understanding 1) and 2).
    Yes, I was holding on to C:\Sandbox because (in short) I did not appreciate nor understand D:\Sandbox #5012
    Sandboxie had never presented as having a need for #5012.
    And I only recently came back to AppGuard. (I'm resting HMP.A)
    The notion to relocate the sandbox container folder never presented nor occurred to me (over-my-head).

    Much appreciation and respect to mood and guest and hjlbx for your collective help and hand holding.

    It depends on the level of your paranoia. I feel perfectly safe with Sandboxie on my C: drive.
