Sandboxie is application software that separate programs from your Windows operating system and runs them on its own.
It blocks the unwanted access to your personal data and provides you the safest way to do web browsing, email, application testing and more.
It is done by creating a sandbox that prevents unauthorized access.
Whenever the malicious program wants to get access to your personal data, it is being transferred to the sandbox with a copy of the file. It means your actual data remains safe.
And, there will be no effect on the original file on your system. The malicious programs will try to run application in sandbox but they can’t produce harm to the real data.
