Since 2005 I have been keeping important data on iCal. To my horror I found that when Lion and iCloud came in all my previous data disappeared. Lucky for me, I found that the data still lived on my early MacBook Pro which still was still running Snow Leopard and thus had not been sucked into iCloud.


Now I have located the data, how can I migrate the file onto my iMac running Mtn Lion and integrate to the iCal program interacting with iCloud?


I am really pretty chagrinned that Apple would do such a thing because I don't think that I am the only one who keeps important historical data (like medical dates: MRI, Colonoscopy, vaccinations and the like) or vacation dates, flights and lots of other data which does not exist elsewhere.


How do I locate the iCal data file on the MBPro and how can I import it into the present file which is running under iCloud so I can sync my iPhone, iPad & iPod touch.?


Also, what steps can I take to insure that data will be preserved going forward?


Thanks to the group,

Hello JohnFreitag,  The following article contains steps that should be helpful in getting your iCal data transferred over to your new system. iCal 5.x: Back up or restore calendars and reminder listshttp://support.apple.com/kb/PH4731 After creating a backup file on the MacBook Pro, transfer that file to the new system, and follow the steps for restoring there.  All the best,Allen
