I copy a Java or Android project into a NEW Java or Android working set with a different name.

But when I make any change to the classes within the copied project, I find that they are automatically transferred to the original project's code . . .

Can I configure Eclipse so that any changes I make to a given copy of a project will NOT be made to the original project ?

I am trying to do this so that I can have a fixed copy of my project at different stages of development.

The project is the project. Making it a member of a different working
set doesn't make it the copy of a project.

Working sets are just a way to organize how you see your projects in the
workspace.

Create a new project and copy the files into it. This will make a
difference.

Mind you, one would ordinarily adopt the use of a version-control system
like Git and maintain different branches for this.
