When you start eclipse, if your workspace is not in the default directory,
you specify the "-data" parameter with the location of the workspace. For
example, the command you use to start eclipse might be:
eclipse.exe -data c:\data\workspace
If the actual folder is named "C:\Data\WorkSpace" rather than
"c:\data\workspace", that might be the cause of the problem. However, as I
mentioned, simply changing the parameter doesn't seem to help. I think you
need to recreate the workspace also.

What is the "-data" parameter do you talk about?
Anyway I'm not sure that could resolve out problem: all our paths have
correct case, both to the workspace and to every single project.

Oggetto: RE: SVN pending operation
I think I found the problem. It seems to be unrelated to subclipse itself.
Eclipse seems to use the value of the "-data" parameter, exactly as
provided, as the path to the workspace. In Windows, if you enter the name
with a different upper/lower case than it actually exists in the file
system, this causes Eclipse to be confused about whether certain files are
actually contained in your workspace (since it does case-sensitive
comparisons on the path names).
So far, I have tried changing the -data parameter, and that has not helped.
It seems that once the workspace is created, the value is cached somewhere.
I haven't yet had a chance to try creating a new workspace with the correct
casing, but since you're having the same problem I was wondering if it
be the same cause.

I have same problem described in some previous mails (subject "pending
The odd thing is we have two workstations (Eclipse 2.1.2, Subclipse 0.8.1)
where the pending operation view is empty (with all three elements in the
menu on the right of the view correctly checked), while on another
workstation the pending operation view does work perfectly.
All three workstations have same configuration (Windows XP SP1, Eclipse
2.1.2, Subclipse 0.8.1).
Of course there has to be something different but we cannot understand
Does anyone know how to get the view work properly?
It's a true shame this view doesn't work well: it's very very useful in the
daily work cicle.
