mbox Alternatives

    mbox is described as 'Mbox introduces a novel sandbox usage model; when executing a program in the sandbox, Mbox prevents programs from modifying the host filesystem while giving them the impression that they are in fact making those modifications'.

Other great apps like mbox are Shadow Defender (Paid), SHADE Sandbox (Freemium), Cuckoo Sandbox (Free, Open Source) and Any.Run (Freemium).
