RTC does not show all changed files in Pending Changes view

I have a set of jar files in a folder within a project. I then import a set of new jar files with the same names from a directory in my file system, thereby replacing them.

The Pending Changes view only shows a subset of the jar files as having changed (i.e. as outgoing changes). Some of the jar files have the same modified time (and length) as before. I'd like to understand how you calculate a "change". What do you check for? Is there any way to force RTC to treat all of these files as changed since I replaced them in my workspace?

The change will not be detected if you replace the files outside of
eclipse but keep the modification stamp and length. To make this work you
can use eclipse APIs to replace the files. Otherwise you need to delete
and then add the files.

Dmitry, I used the Eclipse file import wizard to replace these files. I don't see a problem with Pending Changes not showing the files as changes since those files did not actually change. Thanks.
