    I am running Android Studio 3.3.2.

    I start a project called myproject. I then exported the project "myproject".

    I tried to remove myproject from studio (close/delete). Also I deleted the myproject folder on the filesystem. BUT when I try to import the previous export of "Myproject", it keeps saying "The project file specified already exists." Studio also seems to re-create the folder "myproject" (albeit blank folder contents)

    QUESTION: How do I remove a project from studio 3.3.2 such that I can import the project back into studio???

    Thank yoU!

    The plot thickens... I installed a brand new android studio on a different computer, and then tried to import the zipped export file. Same error upon import!!?!? How can studio tell me the project already exists on a totally different computer install of studio???

    disregard, there was a filesytem issue, the error message was red herring..
