Description vbrabant 2004-06-10 21:25:41 UTC
I decided to move the class to another package
(Refactoring, Move Class)
A dialog box appears with the following:
	Move class Main
		To Package
I select another package and click on finish.

The following appears
Move Class Main to j2setigerapplication package
    Move source to package j2setigerapplication 
After that operation, everything was ok.
So, I redo the sames operations but with other manner:
1. Refactoring, Move Class
2. select a empty target package
3. click on finish.
4. confirm refactoring.

after a lot of treatment, source disappeared
completely from the disk.

Increasing to P1, data loss. 
It can be consequence of previous actions. See umbrella Issue 44713
before evaluation.

It looks like the source was not lost, but was moved to unexpected
folder. The source has been moved to correct package, but
unfortunatelly not into correct folder. The source was moved probably
into default package of another project, or to default package under
Test Packages node.
