Um.. yep.. I'd like to know also.. It was on my iPhone but my iCal overrode that when synching (see thread: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1851360).
Not even sure where my iPhone is backed up on my computer. Can anyone help?
Welcome to Apple Discussions.
Deleting a calendar from your sources list is almost always certain to totally delete, and eradicate the calendar.
Just saw this post, and was reminded that as long as you have not quit iCal or executed any other command there will be an Edit>Undo Remove Calendar choice available in the iCal menu for one last chance at recovering an "oops" deleted calendar.
Just to be safe, I also make sure that I have regular backups (monthly>iCal>File>Back up iCal) (SuperDuper) (Time Machine) of my calendar database.
If you make the backup using iCal>File>Back up iCal..., you will have a file named something like iCal 2008-12-30.icbu.
Using iCal>File>Restore iCal..., navigate to the file, and follow the prompts to restore from your iCal backup file as it existed when the backup was made. In the example I gave, which was my last backup, iCal would revert to the state that existed on Dec 30th, and any entries made since that date would not be preserved.
If you made the backup using Time Machine, restore the Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library "Calendars" Folder from your most current Time Machine backup.
