Hi,

I have forgotten the workspace I used to create my projects. Have tried all possible options, checked the drop downs, but cant seem to go to that workspace. Any idea how I can view it?

Please help.

Thanks,
Praneet

Hi Rob,

What exactly do you mean by moving to IDEs?

Thanks,
Praneet

He means he's moving the post to the appropriate forum.

Try searching your drive for one of the files. Then find your workspace.

if you are on windows,
Eclipse by default puts your workspaces in:
if your windows user name is "pmirch",
C:\documents and settings\pmirch\workspaces

so you should be able to go to that directory and see them.

Look for a file called org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs It should typically be under eclipse_home/configuration/.settings
You will find entries for MAX_RECENT_WORKSPACES and RECENT_WORKSPACES

If you used the default name for the workspace, you could always search for a directory named "workspace". Of you could search fora key file or directory in a workspace. Any of these should work: ".metadata", ".project", ".classpath". (The first is in the workspace, the second two are within projects within a workspace.)
