Red arrow icon in subclipse
My computer set-up:
–eclipse with aptana studio 3 plugin, plugin development tools and subclipse
and i have 2 projects under version control. i managed to copy the files from one project to the second since i don’t know how to merge two projects yet. when i tried to copy the js folder from one project to the other, this happens:
notice the red arrow. now, i thought it was nothing. i committed the project and left for work. when i went to the office and updated my copy of the project, i found out that the js folder was not there. when i checked the repository, the js folder was not there at all. i was sure it was there when i left home.
found this link which is a thread that gives an heads-up on subversion icons but this red outward pointing icon isnt there in the list.
what do they mean?

The arrow indicates switched
Using Eclipse Mars.1 Release (4.5.1) and SVN 1.8.10. My icons reverted back to normal after running Team > Cleanup.
I see there is already a solution in the comments above, just thought id share my solution which seemed easier , simply
Right click on project > Team > Disconnect (from repository)
Right click on project > Team > Re-connect (to repository)
NOTE: After re-connecting had to commit all changes in project, seemed scary at first but simply updated version number. (I am always a little nervous when synchronizing with the repo)
NOTE: Using subversion SVN plugin in eclipse
