When entering events in Calendar, it will occasionally delete entries by itself.....like before my eyes. Could this be a syncing issue?

    If you're subscribed to a network calendar and events are deleted from the server, they'll also be deleted from the clients.

    You seem to be describing a different problem than the one in your first message. Changes made to the calendar don't stick. You add an event, and it disappears. Is that it?

    Problems such as yours are sometimes caused by files that should belong to you but are locked or have wrong permissions. This procedure will check for such files. It makes no changes and therefore will not, in itself, solve your problem.

    First, empty the Trash.

    Triple-click the line below to select it, then copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C):

    find ~ $TMPDIR.. \( -flags +sappnd,schg,uappnd,uchg -o ! -user $UID -o ! -perm -600 -o -acl \) 2> /dev/null | wc -l

    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:

    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.

    Paste into the Terminal window (command-V). The command may take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.

    The output of this command, on a line directly below what you entered, will be a number such as "41." Please post it in a reply.

    Do the calendar entries also disappear on the other clients?
