This Eclipse plugin adds a wizard and a property page to update the project location by editing the `.location` file in your workspace.
Correct the locations of projects which were moved in the file system without using the Eclipse refactoring move tool. (Alternatively such projects could be deleted and reimported into the workspace. During this process some other project settings are altered which may not be intended.)
The ProjectLocationUpdater also allows to set the path to a project using symlinks without resolving before storing them. (When using the Eclipse import wizard all symlinks would be resolved.)
Some projects depend on external build tools. In consequence they require the workspace configuration separated from the project files.
If such a project has been imported into the workspace and is not located in a subfolder of the workspace, the project locations are stored in the runtime data as absolute path. There is no built in mechanism to change that path.
The ProjectLocationUpdater addresses this issue and allows you to change the location path of the closed project.

Installed and moved my projects flawlessly.

Tried using this plug-in as stated, above. Open Project1, won't let me select the project to change the location of because it's open. Close Project1, open Project2, and can't change the location of Project1 because it's not in the list now. Useless plug-in, Eclipse has become a useless environment for small projects simply because they removed the ability to copy/paste a project somewhere else to create a new project from an existing one. Can't Refactor->Move because a) I don't want to move, I want to copy, and b) it fails in the middle of the move (complains that a file is open, when there's nothing present that could leave it open), and screws up both the original folder and the new one.
Also, of the two links, above, the second one is invalid and the first one (Stack Overflow) has no more useful information than pointing here.
I've just wasted the past two days trying to figure out how to duplicate a project to have two separate versions of the same one (ever heard of a fork?), finally find this plug-in and it's as useless as the rest of the info. Sorry for the rant, but I wish programs like Eclipse would stop disabling very useful and simple features just because some idiot couldn't find his files when he changed an entry in the project's properties which he had no business changing in the first place. Aaaargh!

I do like this plugin, but unfortunately version 1.1.0 is missing from update site. It was there previously, but now only version 1.0.0 is present.
