I have experienced Katalon Studio hanging and never recovering by simply selecting a script in the tab above. It seems to hang very often when I select that same script.
Katalon Studio 8.5
When this happens, I get a spinning wheel and Katalon never ends up recovering. I need to kill the Katalon application. This is very annoying and a major blocker since it happens very often (33% of the times I select the same script).
The workspace exited with unsaved changes in the previous session; refreshing workspace to recover changes.
The following article describes what this message means, what you should do when you see the above message:
This might happen when:
sometimes the computer is put for hibernate many times when the eclipse is still working or
resources gets called too early before the instance of workspace can be created, or
Eclipse did not shutdown correctly.
You could try:
remove folder workspace.metadata.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources.root.indexes
and restart Eclipse (Referenced here) . Good to rename rather than delete because some also metioned that there was some other problem after that.
Go to: .metadata.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources and remove the file .snap
`` Or remove file : .metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources\.projects\<project>\.markers.snap . This is a large snapshot file which Eclipse constantly polls for some projects. (Referenced from here )
