Problem with Desktop sync with Torch 9810

I recently acquired a Torch 9810 (upgrading from a Curve 8900).


Sometimes, when I try to sync the Torch using my Macintosh (OS 10.6.8) I have the following problems:


1.  When backing up calendars the desktop software warns me that if I continue 487 entries will be deleted on my desktop computer.  But I have the Blackberry and my Mac iCal program set so as not to delete old files.  There seems not to be an option just to update the Blackberry and leave my desktop computer alone.  The choice seems simply to sync or not to sync.  How can I ask Blackberry Desktop to modify my handheld device ONLY?


2.  If I try to cancel a "sync" functions, sometimes the program just hangs, then I have to use "Force Quit."


3.  Then when I reconnect the Blackberry the Mac OS tells me the Blackberry memory is corrupted and I should re-format the disk.


I did not have this problem with my Curve 8900.  What is happening?  How can I prevent this from happening again?
