Default Multiple Calendar Entries on Sync

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys hope you can help. I'm a relative newbie to BB and so far have got on really well with no problems . . . . until today !

Today I synced my BB with Missing Sync for Blackberry on my Mac, something I do on a daily basis. Today however, it duplicated all the entries on my BB. I decided to change the profile in Missing Sync so that next time I synced it would overwrite all the entries on my BB calendar with those in iCal. Instead of replacing all the entries it put another copy in so now I've got three copies of each entry.

I don't want to go through my BB deleting all the surplus entries, I use my calendar loads so there's plenty there, but can't seem to find any way of removing them . Anyone got any ideas that would help.

Like I said earlier I'm a newbie to BB so any advice in ABC speak please and can you make it applicable for a Mac user.

I find calgoo calendar is great for eliminating duplicates - you don't need to sync your iCal with gCal (although I now do that and then use google sync to sync my BB, rather than using a desktop client), you can just set up calgoo to connect to your iCal and run cleanup within calgoo. It's pretty straightforward (and free) and they're responsive to questions.

I don't know if it plays well with Missing Sync, though - if you try this and they work together, please let me know since I'm thinking of getting MS to sync my contacts.
