When I found out that all  my events prior to October 2010 had been wiped out from my iCal, I. Literally. Cried. 3 years of my life that I’ve been recording in my iCal. Gone. It was my digital diary where I write where I go and what I do day to day. I even write about my feelings under ‘Notes’ on the event, which is very personal and something I’d never show anyone.

The thing is, I don’t know even know how long ago it happened. Sometimes I like to look back on my life exactly one year ago to reflect, and I’d look up my iCal. It makes me appreciate where I am now and how grateful I am on how things turned out. I wanted to do that the other day when I realized all the events BEFORE October 24th, 2010 had been erased.

All that info, GONE. It’s like having someone burn your diary. A diary you’ve had for years of your thoughts and emotions. I feel so violated that it’s been wiped out without my knowledge. How could APPLE just wipe out your data/information like that? HOW AND WHY?!

I tried Googling and found a Discussions page on Apple Support where others also talked about how they lost their calendar events too. Some did a downgrade from their MobileMe account and quickly found a solution to their problem. For me, the problem is that I don’t have a MobileMe account, nor an iPhone4/iPad/iTouch which is required to do the downgrade. I’m guessing the wipe out happened when I did an update or synced my calendar. God knows.

I don’t know what to do now. So upset. I’m in tears. Thanks for nothing, APPLE.

  1. Fay,

    Sad to read about your data loss. Not synching your device to a computer left you without a backup.

    I us Microsoft office, and sych everything with Outlook, I am sure there are utilities for backing up an iCal that should have been made known in the discussion group.

    You did not mention such and that leads me to assume Apple left you without a solution, other than to switch to Windows 7 and the multitude of devices that will synch with Win 7.

    Good luck!

    David

  2. Using a “consolation” to bitch about how good Windows is compared to Apple. That’s a new low, even for a win-fan.
