A few months ago I had a whole bunch of projects in my Package Explorer which I didn't think that I would ever use. So I deleted them to make some more room. I am still using the same workspace from back then, and the projects I deleted actually still exist in the /workspace directory.

This is a picture of my Eclipse window when I try to Import the project.enter image description here

I'm assuming I could move the project and then re-import it, but is there no cleaner way of doing this?

I don'y have Eclipse on this computer, so I'm not putting this as an answer but... what happens if you uncheck Copy Projects into Workspace? – Moshe Katz Jan 16 '13 at 2:22
I ended up just moving it out of my /workspace directory and then Importing it. Looking back now, this definitely could have worked. – JuiCe Jan 16 '13 at 14:54

In future, as mentioned here be sure to select the Also delete contents under ... option while deleting a project:
