how - eclipse-restore missing projects
eclipse required projects on the build path missing (5)
For some unknown reason the projects that I created in a workspace are no longer listed in the package explorer tab. The actual files of the programs still exist on the flash drive which was the designated workspace. How do I correct this problem so that I can access the projects in this workspace?
A simple solution that requires deleting the affected projects from your workspace, then importing them again:
- Delete the affected projects from your workspace (do not delete from disk)
- Open the files. File >> Open Project from File System >> Select location of files >> Select projects to open.
- After you import them, it should work.
Are you in a different workspace? Try
File > Switch Workspace or if you are in the right workspace already, you could try
File > Import > General > Existing Projects into Workspace and re-import the projects.
I found a way to resolve this issue without creating a new project.
My projects disappeared from the Package Explorer view when I was in the Java EE perspective. When I switched to the Java perspective, they reappeared in Package Explorer.
Version: Mars.2 Release (4.5.2) Build id: 20160218-0600
Not sure what caused this issue out of the blue and how long this solution will hold.
I had a case where my project disappeared from the workspace and when I tried to import the existing project into workspace, Eclipse reported the project was already in the workspace! So I simply created a new project with the same name/location as the folder in which the project was located. This brought the project back to life in my worskpace. This worked in Kepler version of Eclipse.
Try a refresh (F5) of the workspace.
