I am an android developer and i use Eclipse IDE for android and java related development. I love eclipse very much as it has many handy features that enables fast developments. But sometime it gives trouble which may take your time too. Very recently i faced an amazing problem “All the projects disappear from eclipse project explorer”. This problem may arise due to the corruptions of meta data file of a work space(i guess but not sure).
I got this problem (Empty project list) after unusual shutdown of an eclipse. After exploring some time in Google i found the solutions for it.
Here is the steps to overcome this eclipse bug.
Click the “Select root directory” field and browse to each subfolder in your workspace folder, and import.
After this you can see all the projects from workspace to eclipse projects explorer.
Hope this will help someone somewhere at some point of time.
