    just wondering if anyone would know the answer to this:

    i have tried setting the C drive Read-Only in Sandboxie but i lose access to Chrome Profile.

    i tried adding the Chrome sub-folder where that info is to exception list (Direct Access and Full Access), if i remember correctly.
    I am at work now so i cant check...

    In my opinion you gain nothing by doing what you want to do. You are less
    secure by allowing full access to your Chrome folder. You will also get some
    errors if you enable read only CDrive setting.

    You are welcome my friend. Remember, enabling that setting only affects
    the sandboxed C Drive, nothing is gained since your real C Drive is not
    changed by anything thats inside the sandbox.
