1. Find and load eclipse project
-->This will traverse the folders and when an Eclipse project is found (defined by a .project file), it will load and create that Eclipse project.

2. Browse the components to select the folders to be loaded
3. Load the root folder of the components to select the folders to be loaded
--> 2 and 3 are very similar. These options essentially do the same thing. The only difference is that, with option 2, the user can click Finish without clicking next. The original thought was that option 2 was the more popular use case, so we provided the ability for users to click that option and press Finish in the Wizard without much thought. Otherwise it might be annoying to have to take them to the 2nd wizard page and have them visually confirm the selection on all the folders (especially if there are a lot of 'root folders'). We also wanted to make it clear in the UI that we support uses cases of picking arbitrary folders to load (option 3), in which case we force the user to go to the 2nd Wizard page to manually select what folders they actually want to load.
There are work items which talk about the possibility to merge these into one radio button. See:

1. Find all eclipse project root directories in the component, and load
them in the sandbox root directory.
2. Load the selected folders in the sandbox root directory (Eclipse will
create .project files in those selected folders, if they don't already
have one).
3. Don't know how this differs from #2. Anyone else have a thought?

Cheers,

"Load the root folder of the components as projects" loads the component roots as folders in the sandbox.

1. Find all eclipse project root directories in the component, and load
them in the sandbox root directory.
2. Load the selected folders in the sandbox root directory (Eclipse will
create .project files in those selected folders, if they don't already
have one).

Well, yes, but so does the "load the selected folders in the sandbox
root directory" command. In each case, the "Next" page gives you the
ability to select an arbitrary folder, and it defaults to selecting the
immediate children of the logical root of the component.

I.e. the question currently isn't what these two alternatives do, but
rather how are they different?
