Force Folder


ForceFolder is a sandbox setting in Sandboxie Ini. It specifies folders containing programs. If any program in these folders (or in a sub-folder of one of these folders) is started outside any sandbox, will be automatically sandboxed into a particular sandbox. For example:

   .
   .
   .
   [DefaultBox]
   ForceFolder=C:\Download
   ForceFolder=E:\

The first example specifies that programs started from the C:\Download folder (or any folders below contained in those folders) will be forced to run sandboxed in the sandbox DefaultBox.

The second example specifies that any program started from drive E will be forced to run sandboxed in the sandbox DefaultBox. For CDROM and DVD drives, this includes forcing the AutoRun programs that are automatically started by Windows.

Note that the ForceFolder settings only apply to programs that start unsandboxed. If a program is specifically started in a sandbox, or started by a program that is already sandboxed, then ForceFolder settings are not applied in that case.

See also: ForceProcess. If both a ForceFolder and a ForceProcess are applicable to a program that is starting, the ForceFolder setting takes precedence.
