External eclipse projects drive change

rutherford
Hi

I have all my eclipse java projects created externally on a mapped network drive.  I have changed machines at work and there is a different mapped drive located at that letter- now I can't open my projects, the new mapped drive must be there so I cannot change it back.

Can I change the location of the projects in eclipse settings/config files/xml somewhere?

thanks
Matt

hi Matt,

 the project location is stored in your local workspace

        ${workspace}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects/<your project name>/.location

However it is an internal (binary) file and is not intended to be edited by users. I think the best option is to delete the projects from your workspace (via the IDE - the projects should already be closed in the navigator as they are invalid), and then do a

        File -> Import... -> (General) Import Existing Projects Into Workspace

I think you could also enter the UNC path of the project (in the import wizard) as the location to avoid this happening again in future


btw, this list is for the development of JDT - end-user questions should be asked on the newsgroups http://www.eclipse.org/newsgroups/

thanks,
Andrew
