You can do what you want to do, just not the way you are doing it. Your
existing working copy has to be a valid Eclipse project (which essentially
just means it has a .project file). You can then import the project into
your workspace using the File -> Import -> Existing Project into Workspace
option. This does not move/copy anything, it just points Eclipse to it.
The Eclipse "Linked Resources" feature is something else. Proper support
for Linked Resources mainly means to ignore them and that is what we do.
