First off, I'm glad to have found a thriving alternative forum, for Sandboxie, since I asked some friendly questions on the Sandboxie forum and not only were they deleted but tzuk deleted my account, as well. (A warning over there...Be sure you show some love of Sandboxie before you ask questions, otherwise you're accused of making trouble). Anyway, regarding the Applications/Web browser exclusions...It does say there is a trade off for a small measure of security and privacy. I was wondering if it's generally accepted to use these exclusions or not. I find this feature very useful because I still sometimes use unsandboxed Chrome but the bookmarks and other settings that I setup in sandboxed Chrome are lost, when I switch over to unsandboxed...If I don't check mark the boxes. Also, the other day I had two jpg files, showing in the quick recovery, that I had not downloaded but have been on my hard drive for many months. (I just installed Sandboxie the other day). I was wondering why that would happen. It's no harm done, I deleted all the contents (without recovering them) and the files were still in my folder. Thanks!
