I understand your point, but in a sense, the sandbox is a backup of the system components: and it's precisely what I should have used to experiment instead of my main drive!

now that I've corrupted my regular startup volume because of a bad JavaForMacOSX10.5Update7, this snapshot is all I need to go back to work with all my settings, upgraded additional c++ libraries and special python modules intact whereas installing from a DVD will force me to put everything back manually: if only I remember every little things I added over the months...

copy the sandbox to the main drive its content is shared from...
sure: there's a detailed procedure on p. 38... is this what you're alluding to?

and yes, I do have backups of the Users directory from the damaged startup volume: would it be sensible to substitute the sandbox's symlinks for the actual data, then do a regular restore?
