We're running an exchange server (on which my calendar and profile is stored), but not BES so I am syncing locally with outlook. On each consecutive sync, when no changes have been made to either (outlook or bberry) calendar, calendar items are alternately deleted and added to outlook. This sometimes results in missing events in outlook, and at other times double and triple events on the blackberry. If 20 items are deleted, a different number might be added back on the second sync, etc. The events involved include all day events, recurring events, and standard one-time events. I have had no problems syncing contacts, memos or tasks with outlook. Anyone else run into this problem before or have any ideas? Thanks muchly!
If you are confident that your Outlook calendar is correct I would start with the following:
Connect the device via USB and Using DM select Backup/Restore>Advanced
then check the box next to the calendar on the RIGHT hand side (BB Side) and select Clear. Backout to the main menu and hit Synchronize>Synch Now
This will transfer the entire Outlook calendar and you will start fresh. Continuing syching as usual and see if it works (be sure to careful scrutinize deletions and additions.
