If the contents of your project were remote from the workspace in the
first place, you'd see a workspace project (in the filesystem) that
would only contain .project.
This would be the case where you already had source code for which you
created a new project, but left the sources in their original place or
that were already an Eclipse project, but you imported it into the
workspace without insisting that the project get copied into the
filesystem subdirectory that is the workspace.
Hope this helps, hope that this is your problem and that you've not lost
anything. I personally don't remember ever losing anything except by
screwing it up myself in Eclipse, though there aren't very many ways to
make that happen and all of them, I think, happen only after the user is
