Default Calendar items being deleted overnight

Please Login to Remove!

Strange thing... calendar items more than (I think) 6 months old are being deleted off my blackberry 8800. I'm just syncing with my desktop PC (not using BES or anything). This is what happens:

1. Every morning I sync, and I need to do a resync or it'll delete all my old calendar entries off outlook as well.
2. I can sync throughout the day, no problem.
3. Overnight (or perhaps during the day as well), the calendar items on my blackberry that are over 6 months old just disappear (apart from repeating items).

I've checked, and the entries actually do disappear WITHOUT the blackberry being connected to a PC. I checked it last night, and by the morning, the entries had disappeared, for example.

Has anybody got any ideas? The desktop sync is set to sync all items. I have only noticed this problem in the last few days since I acquired the 8800 (I had an 8100 before that). At some point, some entries over 3 months old but less than 6 months old have disappeared as well. When I had the 8100 I used to have it set to not sync any items more than 6 months old. I thought the problem might be related to that, but it still doesn't explain how several hundred calendar entries can disappear off my 8800 overnight.

I've seen various posts relating to a calendar patch but cannot see any posts relating to this specific problem so I don't know if it'll fix it.

Has anybody got any ideas?
