    Hmmm. I haven't got ML, so can't poke around to help you. I see how to do it if you are using iCloud ... Anyway, I'll see if I can send for the cavalry.

    adeanc,

     

    The event retention options have been deleted from the Mountain Lion Calendar application.

     

    As stated by Austin, the only place that I know of that event retention can be adjusted is the iCloud.com Calendar App>Preferences>Advanced:

    Thanks all for your help, maybe apple will put back the option of deleting events after a day. until then i'll manually delete them.

    Thanks, Ferd. Strange option to be dropped. I think, in case I take a sudden fit and move to ML, I'll post some feedback on it. Maybe you should too, adeanc. The more they get, the more the chance of them listening.

     

    EVERYONE's grandkids are more tech savvy than them. I think even my 3 years old grandson. And I'll be 67 next birthday - I find one's sixties afe FUN.
