Eclipse Luna
Need to rename a workspace "Name 1" to Name1.

When I just rename the workspace folder and start eclipse referring to the newly renamed folder workspace, it gives me resource missing exception. None of the resource locations are updated and still refer to the old name.
ANywhere I can change that to reflect the new location(with the renamed folder)? Pls guide

Has anyone figured this out?

I ran into the same problem.

I renamed my workspace folder from the command line and that broke everything.

I ended up starting a new workspace in an empty directory, then importing the projects from the original directory.

It seems to work, but now I have 2 directories instead of one.
