This one is a common problem that I encountered when doing Android development. When I want to import my projects again, I always choose the option
> Right click > Import > Android > Existing Android Code Into Workspace
When I select this, Eclipse gives out the error message “[project_name] overlaps the location of another project”.
The correct way to import an existing Android project right into the Eclipse environment is:
> File > Import > General > Existing Projects Into Workspace
That should do the trick.
