I've recently experienced a complete deletion of all Outlook 2007 Calendar entries on my desktop when when synchronizing to my Blackberry 8130. No other folders were affected on my desktop except my Calendar. In another forum, I found out that it might be a setting on my device for an email account linked to a calendar. under Options, Advanced Options, Default Services (CICAL). So, I checked and indeed the CICAL did link to an incorrect account, so I corrected that but it didn't resolve the problem.
Then, I attempted to restore the 247 Calendar entries that show up in my device backup list, but even after several attempts, nothing showed up in my Outlook Calendar on my desktop. I looked at a single Calendar entry on my device - again, they're all still there intact - and it shows an association with an email account which I use on my device but don't have set up in Outlook on my desktop (because I'm not able to configure it under Outlook 2007). The field at the top of the calendar entry on my device say's 'Send using kmills_ata at yahoo.com'. Why? When did this happen? How do I reset it to a valid email address, if that's the solution? How do I clear it since I don't see how it can show an email address associated with a simple calendar entry on the device but not on a desktop calendar entry.
In addition, I've noticed that synchronization almost always has stripped out the photo image that I associate with a contact on the device when performing a sync to the desktop.
Finally, synchronization lately has also been stripping out the background image I configure on my device. Strangely, if I remove the battery and reinsert, my custom image returns to my device background display upon startup.
Help! I don't want to have to recreate 200+ Calendar entries which I do still have on my device so that they're on my desktop. Nor do I want to duplicate these entries on either desktop or device if I could avoid this. Any advice would be MUCH appreciated!
I'm using the Blackberry Desktop Manager software version 188.8.131.52. I purchased the Pearl last December.
