Recovering corrupted eclipse workspace

It has happened to me sometimes when Eclipse has crashed or if I had to kill it after it becomes unresponsive that the workspace was corrupted and that I was unable to launch the same workspace. Too lazy to create a new workspace and import all my projects again, one trick that did work was to go into the workspace folder and remove the following file:

<my_workspace_name>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.snap

I was than able to start eclipse again and find all my projects in it.
