Error: not able to start eclipse IDE

Problem : I was starting eclipse and it said an error has occurred, see ...\workspace\.metadata\.log.
I opened the log file which had following error log.

Caused by: org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Exception in org.eclipse.core.resources.ResourcesPlugin.start() of bundle org.eclipse.core.resources.

Solution : Delete the snap file from this location  .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.snap in your eclipse workspace.
