Removed project when workspace switched [message #927437] Sat, 29 September 2012 17:05 Go to next message

Hi!

I'm using Eclipse Modeling Tools (Version: Indigo Service Release 2 Build id: 20120216-1857).

One of my projects in the workspace has disappeared from the Project Explorer (the View of all projects). Or better said, it is in the list, but it seems closed and when I try to open it, I get this error message: "The project description file (.project) for 'xxxxx' is missing. This file contains important information about the project. The project will not function properly until this file is restored."

What I really worry me: the project folder isn't available on the filesystem either.

I don't know why or how ... the only thing 'different' that I can remember is that I have switched the workspace to a new one, when that project was open.

Any idea to recover the folder/project? Is there any type of "Eclipse-bin" where I can find my "removed files"?

Thanks,

If you right click on it and look at the Resource properties, it should
indicate where the folder is physically located. If there's nothing
there in the file system it's because your or something has deleted it
or moved it somewhere else. Switching workspaces does not normally
affect the contents of either workspace...
