    Shared space is the space created for Sandbox where applications can be run in Sandbox on the space allocated so that you are not at risk of running where it can makes changes to your disk. Therefore you are running it "in the box"



    'Shared Space' is a dedicated area on your local drive that sandboxed applications are permitted to write to and which can also be accessed by non-sandboxed applications (hence the term 'Shared Space'). For example, any files or programs you download via a sandboxed browser that you wish to be able to access from your real system should be downloaded to the shared space. This folder is also used by the Virtual Kiosk and is located by default at 'C:/Program Data/Shared Space'.


    You can access the shared space folder in the following ways:

    • Clicking the 'Shared Space' shortcut on your computer desktop

    • Clicking 'Shared Space' button on the CIS interface

    if you are running a windows system, why not use the windows firewall, as Macboatmaster suggested?
