Sandbox is a smart utility that helps Mac users to set up, edit and manage access control over Mac. Besides the tools for modifying the access control, the application also provides the users with aт Inspection tool, which gives accurate information (group, entry type, entry behavior) on the selected folders.The main window informs you on the owner, group and permissions that apply for the selected hard drives, partitions or folders. Access control allows any other users to make different operations on the selection (drive or folder). This feature-rich application can restrict reading, writing, ownership and the restriction can be applied to the main folder only, or it can include subfolders too, depending on the user's preferences. Also, this piece of software also offers various actions for the future files moved, copied, written in the permission area.

All in all, it is safe to say that Sandbox is a powerful tool for granting or denying access to different drives or folders; it comes with an easy-to-use menu and various settings and tools for access-control.
