Java – Backup/restore entire Eclipse workspaces

Backup/restore entire Eclipse workspaces… here is a solution to the problem.

Backup/restore entire Eclipse workspaces

I started learning the Android operating system. I’m still learning the mode. While learning Android, I seem to have some new knowledge of Java, and because most of the examples I found want you to use Eclipse… Well, I guess I’m learning Eclipse too (that’s a good thing, I’m not prompting)… This question is mostly about Eclipse and how to perform a basic save of my current state.

I run without a version control system. Once I have a good feel for where I’m going, what I want, and what I need it to do, I’ll fix something, so for now, I’m just looking for some advice on how to save (probably pretty rude) in my current state, and if I manage to mess up my world, be able to get back to that point.

Question 1:
What if I just copy my entire workspace to a different location (CD Rom?). )。 Then perform the task/experiment – in the original workspace (create a new project, create a project from an existing source, delete a project…). all in the saved workspace) and really managed to break the workspace, or maybe I just want to go back to the point where I saved and try the same thing in a different way… Will Eclipse exit, delete the modified workspace, recreate the workspace in the same location from the CD Rom, and possibly run “Clean Up All Items” – safely place me back to the original save point?

Question 2:
If not. What do I need to do to be ethically inspired by this?

Maybe this question has been answered in some web documentation that I haven’t found yet. I might just need pointers to a few well-written web pages?

Thank you for the advice


You don’t even have to delete your workspace. There should be an option in one of the menus, such as “Change workspace”. I’m sure this will accomplish what you want. Just change your workspace to a backup.
