Thread: Alternatives to Sanboxie?

  1. #1

    Default Alternatives to Sanboxie?

    I want to recover any files and folders that had been modified by a specific application running in Linux, there is no any extra permission is needed to the application, just like Sandboxie acting in Windows, files can be modified and can be recovered when you like. What is the alternatives to Sanboxie and as simple as possible, is it possible?

    Although the principle of "DLL Hell" exists in Linux just as much as it is an infamous Windows problem, in general the approach in Linux I've seen is to just move forward and discard old. That means you wouldn't want to ever go back to an ancient version of something, or if that ancient something is to exist it has to be managed appropriately... like named differently and then linked, or stored in its own directory tree or run in an isolated environment or... something else.

    Since we are always moving forward, when you want to restore internal consistency and health to your system, you should want to bring everything up to date with the following command

    Popular choice today... docker. Lxc might have better support in opensuse.
