Default "Calendar" vs. "Calendar - All" missing calendar entries

Please Login to Remove!

I am having a very odd problem with my BB 8130 calendar. Some of the items on my hand held do not appear in my outlook 2003 calendar.

I originally was using a Palm Treo 600, and syncing with outlook was trouble free for about 3 years. When I switched to the Pearl, all calendar items were transfered over to my device. However, the majority of scheduled future events were removed from my outlook data file. Re-syncing does not solve this. When I try to export to the ASCII exporter, the future events are not included.

I am able to view these future entries in my backup file (.ipd file) by searching through it with notepad.exe. I can also see that there are 324 entries listed in the "calendar" item in the backup>advanced dialogue, and a second entry called "calendar - all" with 384 entries (I believe that the difference, 50 items, are the missing ones).

Has anyone else had this problem?
How can I change my Pearl to sync all 384 entries?

I would make sure you have all the data backed up on Outlook, then go to back up and restore, then advanced and delete all the calendar entries on your BB, then sync them and it should fix the problem.
