Hello I have a couple of Eclipse projects which I need to re-create. Should I create a new workspace and then import it all in there?

 Thanks,

You should be able to import a project without creating a new workspace

As long as you have a valid .project file in your project folder , you will have no problem importing from an existing location , or even upon copying to a new location

Open your eclipse that time it will ask you to choose work space so you your own path (new folder path)

as gudii9 said u can import (file --->import--->general--->exiting workspace )
