There is the option of project group.

File 6 > Project group.

Here you can create a project 5 group based on a folder location.

Then you 4 can switch between projects within selected 3 group.

Switching between project groups doesn't 2 require closing the IDE.

It look like Workspace 1 for Eclipse.

Hope it will help!

I am using NetBeans 8.0.2 on Windows 7.

The 14 projects in my workspace are also in a "Project 13 Group" by root directory for a suite of 12 projects. (What Eclipse would call a "workspace" for 11 all projects, or a "Working Set" for a subset 10 of projects.)

In C:\Users\<myname>\AppData\Roaming\NetBeans\8.0.2\config\Preferences\org\netbeans\modules\projectui\groups\<mygroup>.properties is listed the path to the 9 group of projects.

In Explorer, move (: or 8 copy if you are paranoid enough :) your 7 workspace directories to the new drive.

Edit 6 this file and change the drive location 5 for the group.

NetBeans will now see the 4 new location when it opens and loads the 3 workspace and groups.

Use File / Project Groups ... to ensure you 2 are looking at the group you think you are 1 looking at.
