How do I change the Sandbox folder path and Sandboxie.ini

Post by TryKindness » Thu Mar 23, 2017 10:17 pm

The sandbox path is currently set to C:\Sandbox

I tried adding the following lines to the [GlobalSettings] section in Sandboxie.ini but it didn't work.

Code: Select all

Also, is there a way to change the path of Sandboxie.ini?
It's currently set to C:\Windows but I don't want it there.

Sandboxie version: 5.16

Hello TryKindness,

To change the rooth path, open Sandboxie Control --> Sandbox ---> Set Container Folder, choose the desired location.
This is what it looks line under Global Settings in Sandboxie.ini
[ GlobalSettings]

As for your second question:
Sandboxie looks for the file Sandboxie.ini in the following folders, in this order:
In the Windows folder: C:\WINDOWS on most Windows installation; C:\WINNT on Windows 2000
In the Sandboxie installation folder: Typically C:\Program Files\Sandboxie.
Sandboxie does not support any other, custom location for the Sandboxie.ini file.
