How to clean Eclipse? [message #40521] Fri, 27 October 2006 02:52 Go to next message

Hello,

A while back 3.2.1 was released and I updated through the update manager.
Now when I look at the "Manage Configuration" window it shows the 3.2.0
release as disabled but not removable. How can I remove the old plugins
and old relases which are disabled but unremovable??? My Eclipse install
dir is now close to 500MB which is far from necesary.

Any help, advicements and tips are greatly appreciated!!!

For best results, Eclipse should be cleaned with warm water, a mild
unscented detergent, and a clean lint free cloth.

John,
I took your advice: my Eclipse was very dirty, so I mixed one gallon of
warm water mixed with two cups of Tide Free and then poured it over my
computer. Now my Eclipse has stopped working entirely - perhaps I was
using the wrong brand of detergent?
