Recover Files in Eclipse29 May 2008 | Comments
My experience with Eclipse has been generally good, but my computer at work is just not right and that I think has also affected Eclipse.
There already at least 5 occasions whereby Eclipse became non responsive for few minutes and when it actually came back, it wiped out the content of the currently opened file! Scary stuff huh?
I think I remember reading somewhere that Eclipse keeps history of files edited somewhere, looking quickly through the menus, couldn't find it.
So googling around landed me to this post:
To cut the story short, go to this directory to find all your files (need to do some detective work though as the filenames are not kept):
cd ~/workspace cd .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.history
