I have been using eclipse and github desktop to work on a group project, and recently it has not been working. When I pull from the git (sync using github desktop), the files that are already on my eclipse update, but if any new files were added, they do not show up in eclipse.

The pull is working, as the new files show up in my local repository. So I can compile and run the code using terminal, but I get errors in eclipse because files are missing. How do I fix this??

(When I try to pull directly on eclipse, it tells me there is nothing to fetch b/c everything is up to date)

Thank you

If you use an external program to perform the git fetch/merge, you will have to let Eclipse know to look for changes by selecting the project in Eclipse and performing a refresh (right click->Refresh or F5). Eclipse won't know about new files until it performs the refresh.

The Eclipse fetch isn't changing anything because the github desktop has already updated the files. If you only use Eclipse for your git functions (commit, fetch, pull, etc) It will know about the changes since it is participating in the process.
