How do a clone an Eclipse workspace?

I upgraded my CPU and motherboard and installed XP on a new disk.  I left my old disk in the machine.   I have reinstalled Eclipse, and I'd like to move my Eclipse workspace to the new drive.  When I try to copy it, Windows says it cannot copy the file?  How do I clone the Eclipse workspace and keep the history?

Does the Windows give any reason why it cannot copy the file ?

You might become Administrator to move or copy any file in XP.

I assume you chose your workspace in a weird place:
it should not be in the system folders, but in your own area.

;JOOP!

Thank you both.  I discovered that the problem was apparently a corrupted file in one of the folders of the workspace.
