So I am a huge fan of eclipse, I have been using it for about 2 months now, and quite recently i have been running into some problems. for the last week or so, Eclipse has been suddenly freezing and deleting my progress. I am currently working on a game, of which i have about 10 hours in. Last night I finished my game, i went to run it, and it refused to run. then eclipse froze and deleted much of my code. Now I can't run anything in Eclipse. I have tried deleting and re downloading eclipse, downloading different versions, restarting my computer, re-writing my code, making a new project and trying to port it over, everything I have read to fix it. Nothing seems to work. please help?

First, I'd suggest availing yourself of one of the many version-control
solutions out there, the best in my opinion would be Git via bitbucket.com.

Next, in order for us to help, we'll really need to take this step by
step. Please tell us what happens when you create your project, what
you're doing when you run, maybe what OS platform and version of Java
you're running, etc. It's a big area to guess at.

I would suggest downloading Eclipse IDE for Java Developers from
eclipse.org. Download the latest Java 7 JDK from http://java.sun.com.
Wire the JDK to Eclipse.

Don't create your project inside the workspace (not that this is a bad
thing to do, but refer to my first suggestion). Instead, create (or
File->Import) it from some place else in your filesystem that you have
under source code control.

Ensure you save and check-point your code often until you sort out the
"deleting my progress" issue.

You've come to the right place. Be sure to fill us in. It's better to
open a new thread for each new, carefully documented issue. You'll get
help faster and better that way.

Best of luck!
