Sandboxie+ Release v1.1.3 / 5.56.3

This release changes how Sandboxie marks deleted host files as deleted, instead of creating dummy entries it uses an internal data structure to keep the state of changes to the host file system. With the new mechanics it is possible to rename folders and keys properly.

This new behavior needs to be enabled by specifying UseFileDeleteV2=y and UseRegDeleteV2=y in later builds this will be enabled by default, hence please test this build and report back if there are any issues.

This build also adds a new UI functionality, SandMan.exe now monitors the size of sandboxes and reports it in the info column, this functionality needs to be enabled in the Global Settings.

Last but not least this build reduces the CPU usage of SandMan.exe a lot.

If you have issues with an update installation, just uninstall the previous version keeping the Sandboxie.ini and reinstall the new build.
You can support the project through donations, any help will be greatly appreciated.

As far as I'm aware. DavidXanatos does not monitor MalwareTips.
Maybe, post over on Wilders: Sandboxie-Plus v1.1.3

Also for improved reliability you can check the downloads on the project homepage: Downloads | Sandboxie-Plus where only known good builds are posted about a week or two after the github release.

After 6 days, still running without issues. Does not impact the performance and the booting of my computer. I use it mostly with a naked Librewolf and occasionally with Chrome. Nice additional layer of security.
