si exportsandbox exports a sandbox to a file with the extension .pjx. This command also works for Sandboxes in scenarios where the corresponding project no longer exists or the server no longer exists.
The following are possible uses for exporting sandboxes:
Exported sandboxes can be distributed to users to save them time and effort creating them.
Exporting a sandbox and then importing it into other clients can reduce network traffic for large file sets rather than creating a new sandbox.
Exporting a sandbox can be a way to duplicate the sandbox and retarget it to another development path.
Exported sandboxes can be part of a client upgrade strategy, to stagger the impact of the upgrade on work.
An exported sandbox can be used as part of troubleshooting an issue with technical support.
