Problem when loading repositories

 Have been using RTC via JazzHUB for about 4 months. Trying to load updated work from the stream. 

"Problems occurred running loading repository items.

Reason: Cannot create sandbox at /home/username/workspace because one already exists at /home/username."

As this has worked for months anybody know of any changes to cause this??

It sounds like RTC is having a problem creating your local Eclipse workspace. It looks like you are trying to use a workspace at "/home/username/workspace" but that one already exists at "/home/username". Try pointing the client at a fresh workspace that doesn't conflict with these paths and see if that resolves the problem. If you aren't being prompted for a workspace location when you start the client, then you can create a new one using File > Switch Workspace from within the client.

Thanks Adam,
Does not work. Even if you mv the current workspace to a back up name and allow RTC-Eclipse to make its own from scratch it still fails.
Students have created components which I can see but can not load to assist the student.

Hi Ashley - can you look up for existing .jazz5 folders in /home/username/ or higher in that hierarchy?

I think the error message is trying to tell you that you can't create a sandbox inside a sandbox. So it might be that you already have a sandbox above the location you provided that is causing trouble. Let us know if you find a .jazz5 folder in /home/username/ or /home/ .

Then we can discuss a workaround - e.g. delete this .jazz5 folder if you're sure it is no longer needed and user won't lose data from local changes that may not have been checked-in. After that, you should be able to create a sandbox under /home/username/workspace since RTC won't believe there's a sandbox higher up in that path.
