Using the scm cli is it possible to associate a workspace with an existing folder that already contains all the workspace files?

After loading a workspace into a sandbox the workspace can be unloaded without deleting the sandbox contents. Is it possible to subsequently load the workspace into the same sandbox again but have it detect that the required files are already present, and so speed up loading? If any files have changed in the workspace then it could just reload those.

You can try "sharing" the share roots (projects usually, if you're using the eclipse client) back into your repository workspace at the locations where they were present in there. If everything lines up properly then you will see any changes you made after unloading as pending local changes that you can then check-in. Note that in this mode, move/renames are not tracked so in those cases the history will be disconnected from before the move or rename.
