What is a ThinApp sandbox?

Most typical Windows applications save personalized settings for each user in the user’s profile.  Since the application packaged in a ThinApp never actually gets installed on your computer the ThinApp doesn’t store user settings in the same way as a normal application.  Instead, ThinApp uses what is called a sandbox.  The sandbox is a specific folder in your user profile, and each ThinApp you run saves its own settings in the sandbox.  The default location for the sandbox is “%APPDATA%\Thinstall\”.
