Hi all

I am using eclipse oxigen from last year release. Yesterday my d drive died and the problem is d drive is where i save my codes. Two days before, I was working on a code and I had few files opened in eclipse. I closed the eclipse at e end of that day while leaving the currently edited codes in eclipse for ease of continuing editing them next time.

My eclipse is installed in c drive. Is there maybe a way to recover last opened files in eclipse? It would be awsome if i could recover my last code so I don't have to start back from zero. Maybe there is a cache of currently opened project or codes in c drive where eclipse was installed?

All helps and hints are much appreciated.

Eclipse does maintain local history for each file you save, i.e., the previous version before the save, so you can do things like Compare With -> Local History from the context menu, but this history is stored in the workspace somewhere under <workspace>/metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.history/*/*... but given that it sounds like your workspace itself was likely on the D: drive, that might not be helpful at all. :-(

Just for future reference, I have been dealing with some code taken off the Internet that tends to put WindowBuilder into an infinite loop, so I have sometimes had a couple of projects hollowed out (nothing I created being left). For that and for reasons of cached information with previous projects sometimes causing trouble, every time I get a step forward I copy the project and make a new version. If I really get a breakthrough I archive the new version to a separate directory.

I am on a Mac so I can use Time Machine to recover a file from months back (how far back depending on capacity of that second HD).

I suggest you start something like that. There may be a way on your computer to set up the kind of system wherein copies of files are kept on two disks at the same time, i.e., RAID..
