ReHIPSUser folders
« on: May 31, 2019, 09:42:07 pm »
Hi! I've started using ReHIPS as a sandbox and I love it! Sandboxie had compatibility issues with some programs but ReHIPS works with absolutely all of them.
I have a question about the ReHIPSUser folders - why are there 6 of them and can they be moved to another partition? I can't seem to find that in the settings.
I also have another question which has nothing to do with the main subject of the thread - if I set protection to disabled so I can use ReHIPS as a standalone sandbox, would that be fine?

Hi Itay,
there is a separate rehips folder for each isolated environment, this is not so different from the behavior in Sandboxie if you created several separate sandboxes.

If you want to use rehips for sandboxing and not for anti-exe, I think the "permissive" mode is most suited to that. If you set it as disabled, then programs will not launch sandboxed. But already running programs will still be in their respective sandboxes.

Hello Itay and welcome to our forum.

Thank you for kind words :)

Each isolated environment has a corrensponding ReHIPS user. And each ReHIPS user has its own user home folder. We work on redirecting ReHIPS users home folders into ReHIPS folder so all ReHIPS-related files will reside in one folder. And on making this folder movable. As some of these folders are Windows-managed, it takes some effort. But we're working on it, so it should be implemented eventually.

Disabled ReHIPS will only isolate programs you explicitly tell it to execute in isolation by right mouse button click. All programs started the usual way will run as if no ReHIPS is present. So yeah, the best way is to use Permissive Mode, programs in the ReHIPS database will be processed according to their rules, all unknown programs will be allowed without any questions.
