    Time Machine backs up most things, though you can set it to ignore certain folders.


    It's not good looking for Time Machine backups of the iCal application, if that's indeed what you are doing - it won't get you anywhere. The calendar information isn't held in iCal but in the folder I've directed you to.


    When you open that folder and then enter Time Machine should should see the display of receding folders; as you click on ones further back you move further back in time. If the backup wasn't running at a certain time there won't be folders visible for that time. The idea with Time Machine is to keep it running all the time.


    When you change the email address which forms your Apple ID and thus the iCloud login, of course the various applications which access iCloud cannot do so since they are trying to get in using a login which is no longer correct.


    You have to sign out completely in System Preference>iCloud and then sign back in again with the correct ID before they can access your data.

    What message? Do you mean "If you stop using icloud for calendars, calendars stored in icloud will be removed from this mac. Your calendars will still be available on other devices using icloud" ? That't to be expected - just click OK.

    If the calendars have been deleted that's to be expected. I assume you have checked at that the calendars aren't there? That being the case, the only option is to restore from the Time Machine backup, if they are there.

    If the calendars are on the Time Machine backup they should be able to; if they aren't then there's probably no way of retrieving them. You would need to take the Time Machine disk in as well.
