    Hello, i would like to create an open File path in the view to use the "Bookmark Backup" FireFox plugin. This extension create automatic and periodic backups of the bookmarks inside a specific directory that is not located inside the system partition ( somedays, i didn't recover the Sandbox and if a crash occur in the system, i won't be able to recover the last bookmarks after formating ! ).
    Normally the open File path is supposed to let sandboxed programs have direct access to update files and folders outside the sandbox.

    So i have tried to modified my sandboxie.ini ( i'm using a 3.01 registrated version wich is an older version but i don't want to update for different reasons ) in the view to open the File path :

    [DefaultBox]

    Enabled=yes
    CopyLimitKb=300000
    OpenProtectedStorage=yes
    OpenFilePath=thunderbird.exe,%AppData%\Thunderbird
    OpenFilePath=thunderbird.exe,%Local AppData%\Thunderbird
    OpenFilePath=iexplore.exe,%Favorites%
    OpenFilePath=firefox.exe,%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\bookmark*

    THIS is the insertion i have made :
    OpenFilePath=%Personal%\BOOKMARKS\
    OpenFilePath=J:\BOOKMARKS\BOOKMARK BACKUP\

    But it's not working .. although the automatic updates are still working because i can see them when i open windows explorer sandboxed.


    The second problem i didn't understand : i would like to recover those updates inside a specific partition i have made to all my backups. But when i specify the recover Folder in the sandboxie.ini it's strange but it's not working in the partition i want ( i have 3 partitions : C + I + J .. J = Backups partition .. if i put the recover folder in I : it's working // if i put the recover folder in J : it's not working ! ) :

    RecoverFolder=%Favorites%
    RecoverFolder=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
    RecoverFolder=%Personal%
    RecoverFolder=%Desktop%

    RecoverFolder=I:\TEMP\MES FICHIERS RECUS
    RecoverFolder=J:\BOOKMARKS\BOOKMARK BACKUP


    Thank you in advance if someone understand the solution !

    Richard.

    First thing to try, surround paths with spaces in quotes.

    RecoverFolder=J:\BOOKMARKS\BOOKMARK BACKUP

    try this

    RecoverFolder="J:\BOOKMARKS\BOOKMARK BACKUP"

    I cant remember if this is important in SB or not, but very easy first thing to try.

    I have tried your Formulation inside sandboxie.ini but it's not working : when i create a new File inside those sandboxed Folders, the recovery is only working inside the partition I and not inside J ! ..

    RecoverFolder=I:\TEMP\MES FICHIERS RECUS
    RecoverFolder="J:\BOOKMARKS\BOOKMARK BACKUP"

    i have tried to simplify the path : RecoverFolder=J:\BOOKMARKS .. but the problem is still there.

    It should work, although an older version such as that perhaps could be the limitation.

    For example I do this in the latest version

    First I made a template to be used in any sandbox that looks like this
    Code:
    [Template_Local_Allow_Direct_Access]
    
    Tmpl.Title=Allow_Direct_Access
    Tmpl.Class=Local
    OpenFilePath=%Personal%\My Downloads\
    I use this template in a sandbox like this

    Code:
    Template=Local_Allow_Direct_Access
    I also use some recovery directories, which look like this

    Code:
    RecoverFolder=c:\documents and settings\%user%\My Documents\My Music
    Really, looking at your examples, assuming you have rights to access/manipulate the direct access or recove directories, I don't see why it does not work.

    I have just realised that some modifications inside sandbox.ini are not immédiatly active without rebooting the system .. That is the case with the recover Folders and the allow direct access : everything is working after a simple reboot ! I apologize the loss of time and thanks for your help.

    Best regards. Jean Michel
