I have lost my Home and Work subscriptions in my iCalander. Currently I only have "Birthdays" which prevents me entering anyting into the calander. Cheers, jp.

    Hi Jay,

     

    The same thing happened to me when I opened up the System Preferences > iCloud. It warned me that it was going to delete something and I pressed ok. When I went to Calendar, my Home and Work Calendars were deleted. Probably, a lot of other things were deleted that I don't know of. Now I don't touch the iCloud preferences at all. Everything is on my mac.

     

    You might have done this also.

     

    Editted: btw, I created new Home and Work calendars and started from scratch.

     

    gl,

    To me, after unchecking something in iCloud, it is stupid for the computer to delete things from your computer. Deleting things from iCloud sounds more logical. Why would it delete computer files? I guess that the more memory you take in iCloud, you'll eventually need more.

    No, it is not more logical.  If you deleted the data from iCloud it would then also remove data from any other device using iCloud.

     

    If you want the data back, simply log back in.  If you don't want to use iCloud, export the data before signing out and then reimport it.

    So why would it delete files from your computer? Sounds illogical to me. If I wanted to trash files on my computer, I could do it my self. And, come to think of it, that's why I lost a lot of documents in my Documents folder. When I unchecked the items in the iCloud preferences, that meant that I didn't want the files to go to iCloud.

    Because the items are in your iCloud account and you are not signed in. Your Mac and iCloud are separate locations.

    What? You need to sign in to change the preferences. Never mind. It's a scam. Microsoft tactics.

    Then why does the program delete files on my computer when I'm dealing with iCloud?

    Because they are in the iCloud account, which is not not on your computer.

     

    Contacts and Calendars. Stored on iCloud.com, local copies cached, local copies are deleted when you sign out. iCloud copy is not.

     

    Documents and Data. Anything you chose to save to iCloud using iWorks, Textedit or Preview will have a local copy saved on your Mac (in the Mobile Documents folder) the local copy will be deleted when you sign out, the iCloud copy will not.

     

    Mail is a standard Imap system and will continue to function once you put it back manually.

     

    You have to sign in, just like any other account.

    Do you have an iCloud entry on the left in calendars?  If so, hover your mouse on it and click show.  Otherwise, restore a backup or create new ones under File >> New Calendar.
