    I try to recover an item and I get an error that the C drive can not be reached or something like that. I HAVE done a COMPLETE uninstall and reinstall but that did not fix anything. It has continued to happen. Also deleting does not work either. The only way to fix this so far is to RESTART the laptop. This is getting quite annoying.

    It says access denied. Maybe check to see your account has appropriate ntfs permissions.

    How do I do that? Also it doesn't happen all the time, most of the time it can recover/delete but now it starting to deny me that ability.

    Actually, try this first. Terminate all programs and then try and empty the sandbox.

    Is amazing but very often, deleting the sandbox fixes problems.

    Cheater, something else that you might want to try is to reinstall SBIE to a different folder. Uninstall SBIE completely and reinstall to: Program files>SBIE instead of Program files. Doing that also fixes a lot of problems.

    Will try that thanks :) Ok a bit confused by what you mean by Program files>SBIE instead of Program files.

    I figured that since access is denied sometimes unless he restarts the computer, a program might have that file in use. So stopping all sandboxed programs and then deleting might help.

    Cheater, I have never done it but I seen Tzuk recommend it to people who have strange problems like yours. I think he means, create a folder in Program files and name it SBIE (C:\Program Files\SBIE), then install Sandboxie in that folder instead of the default location where Sandboxie is usually installed.

    What type of account are you running and are you using UAC? Also, is it always the same file you can't delete or random ones?

    I had the same problem, but my problem was due to AppGuard Prevented <Sandboxie Service> from writing to memory of <Internet Explorer>. I solved my problem by letting Sandboxie Service to write to the memory. Maybe one of your security software is preventing Sandboxie to work properly.
