A week ago all events in my iCal display disappeared. I restored them from a Time Machine backup. They disappeared again. I restored them again, then saved the .icbu file. They disappeared again. I restored them from the .icbu file. They disappeared again. I signed out of iCloud, turned off wifi, restored all the events, saved the .icbu file, turned on wifi, signed back in to iCloud, re-imported all the events and they disappeared again. I've tried everything I can find that's recommended and nothing works. iCloud seems to have a version of iCal that has saved only events I've entered since this horror began, and that version overrules anything I do on my iMac, no matter how many times I export and re-import. I can think now of only one solution: ditch iCloud from my life. Is this really what it's come to?

    Sorry to jump in here without an answer or solution, but I have a very similiar problem too.

    With me it's "just" downloaded ical events that dissapear (on one device) if I edit them in any way (rename, move to other calender, set an alarm, ...). On the other devices they often stay but without the edit.

    I had the same problem. I also have two accounts, .mac & .me. All I had to do was go to calendar preferences, then account, & add the .me account. After that, all my data came back. Icloud evidently does not recognize the .mac.

    User name for what specifically? As you can probably see, on the support boards it is Julia_1989.  This question would probably be more appropriately placed & answered in a community specific to the user name you're looking for.
