What is Sandboxie Plus?
Sandboxie Plus is sandbox-based isolation software for 32- and 64-bit Windows NT-based operating systems. It creates a sandbox-like isolated operating environment in which applications can be run or installed without permanently modifying the local or mapped drive. An isolated virtual environment allows controlled testing of untrusted programs and web surfing. Sandboxie Plus is being developed by David Xanatos since it became open source, before that it was developed by Sophos under the name Sandboxie.
Sandboxie runs your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer. Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially. Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don't leak into Windows. 16 languages. Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email cant break out of the sandbox and cant infect your real system. Windows Stays Lean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing software into an isolated sandbox.

- BarnMTB thinks SHADE Sandbox is an alternative to Sandboxie Plus
A lightweight and fast sandbox environment capable of running such complex applications as for example a web browser.
I use the free version. Its great. Does what it says. I use it for those suspicious files and web stuff.
Of the pros only here:
Из плюсов только вот:
Sandboxie has a lot of settings, and it needs some configuration. For example, with your concern about access to private data, you could add the AppData folder to the "Blocked Access" section so that no sandboxed application can read from it, and separate user files will be created within the sandbox.
It's a question of the underlying concept. Sandbox solutions by default work in a way that prevents permanent modification of the host system, while still enabling access to the host's storage and configuration. That's by design. If you need a solution that prevents direct file access by default, virtualization might be a better option.

Sandboxie is now an open source project.

SPYWARE!! NO THANKS!
Saved me from many tricky files
As of late, became free. That is enough "selling-point" for me, as I have used this prior to this change.
