I am using Eclipse Helios 3.6.0

I have pretty large application of around 10+ projects in the workspace.
After I sync my app with svn, i try to refresh the projects in eclipse IDE.
The refresh and the build process is taking more than 30 mins

Is there a way to improve the performance ?

Do you need to refresh all projects ? Do you need to keep them all open ? It would certainly help to either refresh only the projects you need to refresh, or close the projects you don't need to use.

I wish I could keep and one of my several Eclipse workspaces down to only 10 projects or so.

It certainly doesn't take me that long to refresh, even after a crash. Except for the dreaded "snap" crash, where apparently it intends to take a week or more rebuilding. And for that I just delete the snapshot files.

You might want to check your machine's virtual memory usage. It's possible that you're thrashing on the paging device.
