Sandbox operation question

After making a Sandbox (shared users and applications), if I

1. Install a new application in the Sandbox
2. Do a "Smart Update" from the Sandbox back to Macintosh HD

then the newly install applications are in both the Sandbox and on Macintosh HD.

If I then

3. Do a "Smart Update" from the Macintosh HD to the Sandbox

then the newly installed applications in Sandbox will be replaced with a sharing link that points back to the Macintosh HD copy of the applications.

Correct, although in step 2 you need to use "Backup - all files" to copy back, and in step 3 you'll use the Sandbox script again. This is absolutely critical: if you use the Sandbox script in step 2, you will lose data.

Dave,

Thanks - to document this fully then:

After making a Sandbox copy (using shared users and applications), if I

1. Install a new application in the Sandbox
2. Use "Backup - all files" with "Smart Update" options from the Sandbox back to Macintosh HD

then the newly installed applications are in both the Sandbox and on Macintosh HD.

If I then

3. Do a "Sandbox - shared users and applications" with the "Smart Update" option copy from the Macintosh HD to the Sandbox

then the newly installed applications in Sandbox will be replaced with a sharing link that points back to the Macintosh HD copy of the applications.

That's right (assuming that you actually started up from the Sandbox, of course).

Can't get copy links working to save space in Sandox

Regarding:

"That's right (assuming that you actually started up from the Sandbox, of course)."

But if I start up from the sandbox I cannot copy from the Macintosh HD to the Sandbox. The Sandbox choice is disabled in the drop down box.

If I start up from the Macintosh HD I can smart copy using the shared applications option but I end up copying everything, including Final Cut Studio, which is huge. I am trying to copy links only in order to save space in the Sandbox partition.

I mean you start up from the Sandbox after you're done. A Sandbox isn't useful unless you run from it.
