Fetch Error

when i am trying to load the Dev org in to my eclipse i am getting an error saying that:


Unable to fetch and save Force.com components to project:

LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Too many files in retrieve call, limit is:5000(LIMIT_EXCEEDED)


Abort or Continue Force.com project creation?


can anyone tell me the reason why is this hapenning. Its very urgent






Its because your trying to return too many meta data components (eg: Classes, triggers, pages, reports etc). The best thing to do is create another project in eclipse with a sub-set of the components from your org (eg if your just working on classes and pages just export those and nothing else).
