Eclipse: Some or all projects can not be imported because they already exist in the workspace

I'm sorry, I know that question is asked quite often. But non of the scenarios suits my problem.

I'm using Eclipse (in Win7) with Git. Within a Git-branch I created a new project. Then I switched back on the master-branch. There the project is not in the workspace. But when I want to add it, I get the following error:


Some or all projects can not be imported because they already exist in
the workspace


My problem is, that the project is NOT in the workspace - as seen in Eclipse. But sure, it's on the hard disk, because it's part of my Git repository. So I can't delete it there. According to other posts, I removed it from this folder:


C:\Development\workspace.metadata.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources.projects


But still I can't re-add it to the Eclipse workspace. Any idea?

Use "file" --> "import" -->"Existing Projects into Workspace" to import the Project that exists on your HDD
