Can I make an exception to a subfolder for quick recovery

Post by phrab » Thu Feb 22, 2018 2:59 am

I have quick recovery for certain folders, including "My Documents". I just created a subfolder called "Thunderbird" & moved my default profile to it. When I open Thunderbird in Sandboxie, I get all these messages about downloading various files to my Thunderbird subfolder.

I would like to keep quick recovery for my main "My Documents" folder, but make an exception for the Thunderbird subfolder. Is this possible?

Thank you,
Phil

Thank you so much for your quick reply. I'm still a little confused & hope you can help me.

I looked in my Sandboxie.ini file & found these entries:
ConfigLevel=7
AutoRecover=y
RecoverFolder=C:\Download
RecoverFolder=%Personal%
RecoverFolder=%Desktop%
Enabled=y
Template=Thunderbird

Later, it said:
Tmpl.Thunderbird.phil=C:\Documents and Settings\Phil\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\MyProfile.default

If I move my Thunderbird profile to a subfolder "Thunderbird" in the Data folder & if I change that last line to:
Tmpl.Thunderbird.phil=C:\Documents and Settings\Phil\Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\MyProfile.default

And also add:
AutoRecoverIgnore=C:\Documents and Settings\Phil\Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\MyProfile.default

will this accomplish my purpose? I still want to get all my downloaded mail & settings in my Thunderbird profile. I just want to do it automatically, the way it does now.

Or will I have to exclude my Data folder from quick recovery?
Thank you again for your time,
Phil

Hello phrab,

Here's how to set up the folder exclusion via GUI, (add the desired folder and let us know if you encounter any issues):

We do have a guide for setting up email clients to work with Sandboxie, please have a look:
