It always bothered me that after I edited files on the filesystem I would have to then explicitly tell Eclipse to “Refresh” in order to see them.  I stumbled across an option in the Preferences today that completely fixes it with just the click of a button!

Window –> Preferences –> General –> Workspace : Refresh Automatically

This the “File out of date” error I would get when copying and pasting files within Eclipse after an Ant build.  It also makes files appear magically in Eclipse when working directly with the filesystem (like when using Tortoise).
