Why this documentation is hosted on GitHub?
After Sandboxie became open source, it was decided to release the documentation in the same way, in order to be accessible and easily updated from the community. So these pages tend to be more up-to-date than the documentation available on sandboxie-plus.com and other archived sources.
Select from two editions:
- Get Sandboxie Plus if you are a first-time user or want the latest features.
- Get Sandboxie Classic if you have used Sandboxie for a long time and prefer a familiar environment over new features.
