Delete... does not delete fully? [message #1844311] Wed, 08 September 2021 16:34

I created a project with new/project/Maven. I used the wrong options and deleted it, checking the box to delete everything from the filesystem. I looked at the windows folder and indeed it was gone.

Then I recreated a maven project by the exact same name (different archetype) and I noticed that the pom.xml of the old project was being restored instead of creating a new one.

The only way to make it work properly and truly create a new project was to change the chase of a character in the project name.

This tells me that Eclipse is failing to delete everything about the old project even when you select the checkbox to do it. Obviously a bug, but I'm not going to worry about that.


How can I fully delete all traces of the previous instance of the project?
