I have a meeting request from a colleague which keeps reappearing in my ical even though I have declined it and deleted it several times. How can I delete this for good or is something else going on here?

    Try each of the following steps until the issue is resolved. Back up all data before making any changes.

    Step 1

    Create a new calendar. Move the unwanted event(s) into it, then delete the new calendar.

    Step 2

    If the calendar server has a website, like iCloud or Google, log in to the website and delete the event.

    Step 3


    Quit Calendar. Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:  

    ~/Library/Calendars/Calendar Cache
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select
    Services ▹ Reveal
    from the contextual menu.* A Finder window should open with a file named "Calendar Cache" selected.
    Move the selected file to the Trash. There may be one or two other files in the same folder with names that begin in "Calendar Cache". If so, delete those files too.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C). In the Finder, select

    Go Go to Folder...

    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.

    Step 4

    Follow the instructions in this support article, then log out, log back in, and test.

    Step 5


    Boot into Recovery. When the OS X Utilities screen appears, select

    Utilities Terminal

    from the menu bar. A Terminal window will open.

    In the Terminal window, type this:



    Press the tab key. The partial command you typed will automatically be completed to this:



    Press return. A Reset Password window will open. You’re not  going to reset a password.

    Select your boot volume ("Macintosh HD," unless you gave it a different name) if not already selected.

    Select your username from the menu labeled Select the user account if not already selected.

    Under Reset Home Directory Permissions and ACLs, click the Reset button.



    from the menu bar.
