Hi,

We have customised eclipse to talk to a mainframe. I fetch the files from mainframe and store them locally on the windows box. User selects the files to work with and we create a link to the these file and add it to the project tree. the elements are linked to the project tree using the createlink method in IFile.
we use -
createLink(<absolute path of the file>, IResource.FOLDER, new NullProgressMonitor());

What we have seen is that once the project is created, the .history folder (.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources) size is very huge. For a project created with 4900 files, the .history folder size is 550MB (thats very huge).

Is there a way to tell eclipse not to create anything in the .history folder ?
I would like to disable writing to .history folder.

Hi Mahesh,

You can try changing the history preferences from the page Window->General->Workspace->Local History and see if it works.
The same can be modified programaticaly using
org.eclipse.core.resources.IWorkspaceDescription. For the preference keys take a look at the class WorkspacePreferences

Days to Keep File to 0.
MAximum entries per file = 0.
Maximum file size (MB) = 0.
under Window->General->Workspace->Local History.
