 Hi all


I can't delete a WS.

Here is the log of the error.

 java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The source control metadata for 'C:/Users/USER/workspace/ReleaseTest' is missing parent information
at com.ibm.team.filesystem.client.internal.localchanges.LocalChange.validateTargetParent(LocalChange.java:85)
at com.ibm.team.filesystem.client.internal.localchanges.LocalChange.<init>(LocalChange.java:63)
at com.ibm.team.filesystem.client.internal.localchanges.LocalAddition.<init>(LocalAddition.java:18)

What should I do?

The error normally means the sandbox metadata is corrupted. To fix the issue you could try to select "Windows > Preferences", then go to "Team > Jazz Source Control > Sandboxes" and run "Repair Metadata".
If the sandbox is not needed to you as you are trying to delete the workspace, you can also delete the sandbox and try to delete the workspace again.
