I NEED HELP - Calendar there but not there ?????

[ Edited ]

Unusual problem with my wife’s BB 8300.  Calendar entries for 3 year period both single and recurring show up in Calendar on the BB 8300 and can be edited and will cause alarms and reminders BUT Calendar entries will not Back-up into an.ipd file.  All other data on BB 8300 will back-up.    I can read ipd files with ABC AMBER Blackberry Converter and Calendar part is empty in the .ipd back-up file.


  Additionally Calendar entries will not sync with Outlook, but all other data in the BB 8300 will sync fine. I have tried dual and one-way sync as well as deleting the sync configuration entry in the RIM folder and then re-config. Sync.  Doesn’t help.


  Upon examining BB I found clues to cause. No entries listed in Calendar and Calendar Database Size is listed as 0 entries with 0.0K size.


  Seems like BB 8300 operating system as lost record of the Calendars existence even though it’s there and running fine.


  I am afraid of BB losing the Calendar data and then since there is no back-up or Outlook all will be lost forever.


  Is there a way for the BB 8300 O.S. to rebuild it’s record of the existing Calendar  so the Calendar Data can be either backed-up or sync’ed to Outlook ?
