Detecting Existing Sandboxes on new PC

Post by ryank » Fri May 05, 2017 10:12 am

Hi, I'm clearly being stupid as I've been reading the FAQ and having a look here, but I just can't figure it out.

On my old installation of windows 10 I installed Sandboxie, and created a bunch of sandboxes. Then I had to reformat and reinstall windows. I reinstalled Sandboxie, attached my portable drive where the sandboxes reside (and they are definitely there, I can see them in Windows explorer), and I changed the Sandbox container folder to point to the portable drive. How do I get the sandboxes to show up in the Sandbox control center, so I can right click on them and launch the programs inside in the same way I used to before the reformat please? I'm sure it's just me being stupid, but I cannot find an option to detect existing sandboxes, or add existing sandboxes.

Thanks a lot!

Hello ryank,

Once you have placed the Sandboxes in the correct folder (Set Container Folder), create a new Sandbox with the name of your old one and you should be able to access the files via Sbie Control.
