Welcome to Apple Discussions.
What system did you have before you upgraded to Snow Leopard?
Do you have any data that you want to save?
Why are you trying to delete old data?
Are you using any sync software?
Be sure to fill out "My Settings" with the details of your hardware and software.
I had whichever OS came with the first version of the unibody macbookpro 15inch. I'm not sure I would assume 10.5
I don't want to save any data, I want a clean slate as I feel it has lots of issues right now with recurring events and incomplete syncs bugs seems to be present with the events I want to delete everything.
I am using Missing Sync to synchronize my Ical events with my phone. I also had Microsoft Entourage 2008 but I disabled the syncing with Ical, besides Entourage synced to the Entourage calendar not the Home and Work which is where the problem lies
I am not sure which version of system software came with your computer, but check if you have a "Calendars" folder in your ~/Library/Application Support Folder. If there is one at that location you should delete it.
Since you are/have used various methods to sync, it is my assumption that the data is being repopulated from one of those sources.
Try Mac OS X v10.5, v10.6: Resetting the SyncServices folder.
Then log out/in or restart and empty the data contained in your ~/Library/Calendars folder before you attempt to open iCal.
FerdII Thank you so much the Sync Services seems to have been the culprit!!
One last thing I'm attempting to do is relocate where the ICal data is stored, I tried to place an Alias of Calendars into /username/Library but then Ical gives me "The filename is invalid" when I try to open it.
I've tried a symbolic link too and same error.
