I just downloaded an eclipse .project file from outlook but was not able to find it. I figured that this might be an issue because the file does not have a name and has only an extension. thus I changed its name while saving and I was able to download the file. However, The problem now, is that I am unable to rename it back to .project. This was a huge pain. Finally, I copied an existing .project into the folder I wanted and then copied the contents from the one that I downloaded into this file by opening them in a Notepad(NPP++ for me).
I was wondering how this kind of behavior is possible in windows where a file can exist with that particular name but cannot be renamed into it. Any Ideas?
I was also looking for an easier way to accomplish the task mentioned above.
Thanks in Advance!
