option to put Sandboxed drives on the actual drives

Post by Obsidia » Tue Jul 12, 2011 1:10 am

I sand box about 60% of my software. My Boot drive is 90% full, i have 3 1TB slave drives. When i install a program into the sandbox and select one of the 1TB drives as the install location, it still saves it on the boot drive. The result is that my boot drive continues getting fuller despite that i never choose to install there anymore. While i understand why it is setup this way, i think we need an option to put the sandboxed drives on the physical drive they represent.

You could always just change Sandboxie's container folder to point to another drive (this will apply to all sandboxes) or you can just change the location of individual sandboxes instead with the FileRootPath command. :)

See the Set Container Folder command in the Sandbox menu.

I wish there was an easier, user-friendly way of doing it though

i agree with having sanbies drives placed on the actual drives the data belongs on as it kind of moves i/o from the drives onto system drive and also results in data leaks like below sandboxie dumped all my thumbnails from my 4GB j: partition thats quick/easy to wipe to my 200GB OS partition thats not so quick and easy to wipe

C:\Sandbox\user\Waterfox\drive\J\Explorer
