Hi,

I just migrated the contents of my 2008 MBP to a brand new iMAC - everything is working well, but my iCal has frozen. It is adding new events (eg. if someone sends me an invite) but it won't let me do anything and just "barks" back when i try to input something. I've quit the app multiple times, and restarted my computer but this doesn't help. I've also searched for the caches and preferences in order to trash them, but they actually aren't there.
Thanks for any help - my iCal is indispensible!

    caninoz,

     

    Paste this text ~/Library into the Finder>Go>Go to Folder...window and select "Go."

     

    Then open the Calendars Folder and move any any files with "Cache" listed in the name field to your Desktop.

     

    Next open the Preferences Folder and move the com.apple.iCal.plist file to the Desktop.

     

    Log out/in or restart, and open Calendar.

    Ferd II,  I am trying this and want to confirm that I remove all files with cache even the ones in the inside folders.  Then what do I do with all the ones on my desktop that I moved there to make this work?

     

    Thanks for your help!!

    AMD,

     

    As long as you only removed "Cache" files from the specified "Calendars" folder, it should not matter if they are in "Cache" sub-folders. Once on your desktop they can be safely trashed.
