Default Scanning inside Sandboxie

Hi folks , i have been reading and trying to figure this out myself with no luck .

When i download something into the sandbox from my sandboxed web browser i am trying to find a way to scan the download inside the sandbox to see if it's dangerous before i recover it .

Is this possible ?

It seems you have to recover it and then scan it but isn't that going to be too late or does it take clicking on the download and installing it to get infected ?

Thanks

Simply scan the Sandbox folder before recovering the files in question. I believe it's usually located on the root of your C drive by default (ie. C:\Sandbox).

C:\Sandbox > default box > user > current > my documents > downloads > The file to be scanned- right click and scan

Hi Herb. as Sope and Torres said, to scan files inside the sandbox, you can do it by scanning the Sandbox folder located in C drive.

About the question above, as I understand it, if you download a piece of malware to your hard drive, for you to get infected, you have to execute it.

But....know this. If you execute a file, say by mistake, while its inside C>Sandbox, the file will run sandboxed automatically.

Another thing, Herb, most real time antiviruses scan files as they are created in your hard drive. So scanning a new download with your real time antivirus after the file has been created and placed in your hard drive, its probably not necessary.

If you haven't, you should read this link about Sandboxie and antiviruses.

Navigate to C drive and scan the Sandbox folder. You really dont have to go inside the sandbox folder. And yes, the sandbox folder is in C drive, outside the sandbox.

Herb, in your picture which is a terrible picture, I cant see the details at all, its too small, I see two yellow folders. You should only have one yellow folder in there. What are the names on this folders?
