Why doesn't intelliJ create File System when you import existing Maven project?

When you import existing project in intelliJ, it doesn't create a file system in workspace directory, instead it just creates an .idea folder having some xml files.
In Eclipse IDE when you import existing spring boot maven project then it copies the file system into workspace.
Please let me know how to enable it in intelliJ.
Thanks.

In Eclipse, you have a choice of copying the project or pointing to an existing directory. IntelliJ automatically uses the existing directory rather than making a copy.
