Eclipse – Problems occurred while trying to save the state of the workbench in Eclipse

eclipsesaveworkspace

I have a problem each time I close Eclipse (Helios Release 1 in Windows Vista). This is the error log:

Problems occurred while trying to save the state of the workbench.
Problems occurred during save.
Problems while saving variables and containers
C:\Users…(workspace dir)….metadata.plugins\org.eclipse.jdt.core\variablesAndContainers.dat (Access Denied)

When I started using Eclipse I used to have the workspace in different directory. Then I moved it to a different location. On loading the workspace it works correct.

Any ideas how to fix it?

Best Solution

To fix go to your workspace and delete the .metadata folder. Restart eclipse and point it to where the old workspace was and load projects using File -> New.

You can only load one by one but at least it solved the issues
