[FAQ] How do I work with files from an isolated program?
« on: January 08, 2019, 09:23:32 am »
ReHIPS isolates by executing untrusted programs from separate restricted users. So isolated programs don't have any access to real user home profile folder and don't have write access to many locations.

So the best way to work with files (like from Word) is to use a ReHIPS folder (more about it in this blogpost ). When ReHIPS is installed it installs rules for known programs and for example for Office programs like Word it creates C:\ReHIPS\Office folder. The most secure way is to use this folder to work with files.

But you can also use Open File Access feature, it's less secure, but more convenient, it allows to open a file just by standard and familiar double-click (more about it in this blogpost ).

And the worst way is to enable Copy User Data feature (discussed here ). But it's really discouraged to do it as it's designed for settings. It'll copy absent files on first use only and won't keep them synchronized.
