    Default Changes in editor not being saved to file

    I have been messing around with egit and am unable to push files from eclipse. I edited one of the files in eclipse, saved it, and found that the original file was not being saved. Any help with this?

    Apparently when I tried to set up git, it moved the files around. I did not know this. Still trying to figure out how to stop that as I want the files in dropbox, as well as github.

    Yeah, I was trying to configure eclipse to use github, but it doesn't work too well. I can do it with the CLI tool. I seemed to have resolved the issue with my source files not being changed. They were moved when I tried to set it up.

    If you want to see the files on both dropbox and github the easiest way is to locate the dropbox folder (in local machine) as the github root. So only thing you have to do is maintain the project inside the dropbox folder.

    Personally I hate online repositories. Specially maintain my projects and related stuff. Personal stuff too.
