This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
you can reference an external directory outside the workbench as a source or output directory. That's what I always do, separating data from programs (they're always on different drives, sometimes different computers).
Actually you don't even need to do this - the project doesn't need to reside in the workspace. You should be able to simply "import" the existing folder structure.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

Doesn't that make a copy of the contents (preserving the directory structure) into the workbench directory rather than just using the imported files?

Yes - sorry, confused it with "import existing project into workspace"...
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
