When you run a program on your computer, data flows from the hard disk to the program via read operations. The data is then processed and displayed, and finally flows back from the progam to the hard disk via write operations.
For example, if you run the Freecell program to play a game, it starts by reading the previously recorded statistics, displaying and altering them as you play the game, and finally writing them back to disk for future reference.
Sandboxie changes the rules such that write operations do not make it back to your hard disk.

portable computers. (Initially available in version 3.20.01)

- Online multiplayer games running in a sandbox can connect to
PunkBuster-enabled game servers.
- Improved support for FAT32 volumes on Windows 2000. This functionality was
last available in Sandboxie 2.64, and is now restored.

allows complex products to be installed entirely into the sandbox.

can start programs as Administrator.
