Re: [pdt-dev] Resource is out of sync with the file system

This issue is particularly visible if you have parts of one project checked out in the workspace as a different project; for example, you might have /cvsroot/tools/org.eclipse.pdt checked out as a single huge project, then Import > Existing projects the subfolder org.eclipse.pdt.releng into your workspace. Any time you change something in org.eclipse.pdt.releng, the equivalent file in the org.eclipse.pdt/org.eclipse.pdt.releng project in your workspace will become out of sync with the file system.

(As Michael says, this happens too when a file is modified outside Eclipse too.)

Even with the 'refresh workspace automatically' option enabled, this can happen on large workspaces because it takes a while for Eclipse to "see" all the file system changes and refresh silently.

As to the issue of having to close & reopen, that sounds like an Eclipse bug, perhaps related to how much available memory it has been allocated [1]. Is the out-of-sync file a local file, or something from a remote mount or share?

This problem is not related to PDT. This usually happens when some

you'll be OK.

Hi All,

I've just upgraded to PDT 2.0 (also tested with 2.1 beta) found a problem
when files becomes out of sync and you get the message

Resource is out of sync with the file system: '<filename>'.
Press 'F5' or select File > Refresh to refresh the file.

Press F5 or selecting File > Refresh doesn't fix it. I have to close the
file and reopen it.

Am I doing something wrong it seemed to work fine in PDT 1
