Avast Sandbox Questions
« on: November 27, 2020, 03:27:45 AM »
Hey Guys, New to the forums and got the paid version of avast recently. I am starting to use the Avast Sandbox and had a couple of questions.

1) How do you reset the sandbox? I downloaded a file to desktop from chrome..while i'm not able to see this file on my computer itself, when i'm in the sandboxed browser, i'm still able to see the file even though I have closed out of browse and went back in.

2) If i wanted to transfer a file that was downloaded from avast sandbox to my computer, what is the best way to do this? I have "Save trusted downloaded files outside sandbox turned off". is there anyway to share files between the main computer and avast sandbox?
