Windows Sandbox is a great tool in Windows 10 but you might encounter errors on this app. Recently, the security app tool and Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) started showing an error on Windows 10 1903, 1909, 2004 versions. This is Windows Sandbox error 0x80070003 (0xC0370400) that may show up in your system when you open the app.
Windows Sandbox was put forward earlier in Windows 10 May 2019 update (v1903) for the Enterprise and Professional versions users. The feature added a new dimension in the arena of software testing and made it easier and harmless. App has an integrated virtual engine in order to test the untrusted software in a separate desktop environment to ensure the task is not hampering Windows 10. Any file used in Sandbox will be there in the environment and straight away deleted once you close the application.
