I upgraded to Lion from OS X Snowleopard (current release) last week.


My calendar was a mess before the update and it carried thru to Lion. Now, I'd like to start over with a brand new iCal database.


So does anyone know where Lion stores its iCal data on the hard drive?


I am assuming that if I delete the files in that folder, then iCal will create brand new calandars when I start it up. If that assumption is wrong, then please advise.

    All you need to do is select the calendar from the "calendar" button on the upper left in iCal, highlight the calendar you want to delete and then select delete from the "edit" menu. In the same way you can create a new calendar.

    ...unless the button reveals no calendars, yet they persist on your system.  I, too, would like to know the actual physical location so that I can remove them and start fresh.
