I'm wondering how to programmatically restore the default settings for all the preferences available in a product. I'm a bit confused with scopes and stores Sad

I tried this:

  public static void restoreAllPreferencesToDefault() throws BackingStoreException {
    IEclipsePreferences rootNode = PreferencesService.getDefault().getRootNode();

  private static void clearAll(Preferences node) throws BackingStoreException {
    String[] names = node.childrenNames();
    for (String name : names) {

But I'm not sure it solves the problem correctly ??

You can restore the default value of a preferences by using : PlatformUI.getPreferenceStore().setToDefault(YOUR_PREFERENCE_NAME);
