    Best free software for running multiple sandboxes? 17th Jun 17 at 8:57 PM
    Hello, I'm aware of a few free programs but they only run a single sandbox and was wondering if anyone knew of free options that allowed multiple sandboxes to be run?

    I have Windows 10.

    Would Virtual Box do what you want?

    I think it would be too bulky to do Frozen. If I wanted to run a program 3 times then I would need to run it in my current OS then install 2 other virtual OS's losing me 40-50GB of hard drive space. Plus it would slow down my computer hugely when running all 3 together.

    I think I might know a better way now. If I created extra user accounts then held Shift down and right clicked a program I can choose to run them as a different user, but I just need to do a bit more research so I don't mess anything up.

    UPDATE: it doesn't seem to work. When I run it as one user and then try running it as a different user it doesn't open a second time. It just flashes back to the already opened program. Damn.
