Accepted answer

The project folder contains a file called .project. In your cloned project, open that file with any text editor and look for the project name:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<projectDescription>
    <name>LeadoMat</name>
    <!-- more stuff here -->
</projectDescription>

Change the content of the name element to LeadoMat_Ver2. You should now be able to import the project into Eclipse.

The simplest approach would probably be to do the copying right in eclipse:

Right Click your Project -> Copy
Right Click in the Project Explorer -> Paste

or

CTRL + C & CTRL + V

Eclipse will then automatically prompt you to enter a new name for the clone. Then you'll have a full copy of your project with the new name.


The reason why eclipse thinks that it is the same project, is because you also clone the .project-files which contain the name of the project used in eclipse.
