    Is it possible to run two instances of scrapebox on the same machine?

    I'll often extract the links from a spammed-up page and then draw down all the backlinks pointing to those promoted sites to find places to drop links myself. This can be a long-process as many of these links are not places I can get links from.

    When I do find a spot that I can get a links from, I often want to use SB against that whole site to find other pages on the site where I can get more (and better) links...but I don't want to save the info on the 5,000+ links I have loaded in SB (with PR Check run already completed) in order to run a new query on this one particular site.

    The obvious solution would be to have two instances of SB running at the same time so I can do this "deeper" research on a different copy of the software. Would be even better if I ran all the "deep" research on a second monitor.

    Is it possible?

    Yes, just copy and paste the Scrapebox folder (so you have, for example, my documents/scrapebox and my documents/scrapebox-2. Create a shortcut to the second application and run two instances like that.

    You don't need second license and I believe you are not restricted to two instances either, you can run three, four, or whatever number you want as long as your PC can handle it

    Yeah you can run as many instances on a single machine as the machine and your bandwidth can handle.

    Free tip: sbox has a handy little feature to name each instance of it; this can help you keep track of them if you're running say 4 or 28 instances. Options->Name your instance of scrapebox.
