Just got off the phone with Apple Support.  With Lion, your User/Library/Calendar file is now hidden.  Here is how to find it in order to restore data to your iCal.



Close iCal


  • Open FINDER
  • Use “GO” button located across top
  • Hit and hold the OPTION key on your keyboard
  • You’ll see LIBRARY appear in the list  (this is a hidden file you cannot see otherwise)
  • Select LIBRARY
  • Select CALENDAR
  • (you can see all the .calendar files under this item)



Go to day/time you want to restore back to

Highlight the CALENDAR file (which can now be seen by virtue of your efforts above)

Select RESTORE from Time Machine


Open iCal to view the updated data.
