downloaded the program again, but the data is not transferred

Post by t1myr777 »

Good day forum users, I deleted the program and downloaded it to a new PC. I have a folder with the old program and data, how can I integrate it into the new one?
I would be grateful for your help!

You have to have the contents of the

Code: Select all

Sandboxie.ini
as it contains the configuration of the sandboxes. This file is usually located at C:\Windows. Copy the file to that folder or its contents into the already present Sandboxie.ini. It can only contain one [GlobalSetting] section.

If you did not choose custom paths for the sandboxes, their files were located at C:\Sandbox. The default placeholders are

Code: Select all

%USER%\%SANDBOX%
so that you have to copy your sandbox folders to the folder of the new user, if that is named differently.

Sandboxie.ini stores settings for the sandboxes and Sandboxie in general. Without it, the settings have to be recreated.
The folders containing the sandboxes need to be in the right place, so they can be used again. Without these files and folders, you can have the previous sandbox names and settings, but they would be empty. So you need both.
