When I'm creating new iCal events and go to set an Alarm, I'm now seeing the first entry in my list of previous options:

None - Corrupted Information


It appears others have seen this problem before - which is [documented in this thread|] - but without resolution.

I happy that the system recognizes that the information is corrupted but I wish I knew how to resolve the the corruption.

Anybody know what I can do to clean this up?

    Try this:

    quit iCal

    in the Library/Preferences in your home folder locate

    duplicate it in case something breaks


    click the black triangle beside root and scroll down to PersistentMenu-lastUsedAlarms

    click the black triangle beside PersistentMenu-lastUsedAlarms

    select item 0 under PersistentMenu-lastUsedAlarms and click Delete



    restart iCal
