Eclipse settings to back up?

Does Eclipse store any settings in its installation directory? I back up my workspace directory regularly, but I only bother to back up my Eclipse installation directory before I install a new plugin. If any of my personalization settings (like my keyboard settings) are stored there then I should probably be backing up my Eclipse installation directory more often.

I don't think so, each workspace maintains its own settings.

You can store the personal settings by exporting them into a file.

See Window->Preferences->Export (and Import of course).
You can even transfer settings from one release on
 (say) MSWindows to another near release on (say) LINUX.

Beware that the preferences GUI has changed a bit over the releases.

;JOOP!
