Nice little app to delete the duplicate events that show up when you're syncing calendars. Be nice & donate if you like it.

I can not get this to work. I have multiple calendar item duplicates/triplicates and this app goes through my calendars and apparently culls them, but when it is done, nothing has changed - I presume icloud syncing is either preventing the cull or is replacing slimmed calendars with old calendars with dupes. Manual deletion isn't an option - one of my calendars has 2500+ entries, so that's why I tried this app. there has to be some way to get around icloud forced sync and undoing this app's good work.

I have been using this program as MobileMe has populated my calendar entries over and over again to the tune of the tens of thousands and it has always served me well. I used it again yesterday and it deleted every single calendar entry back to 1998! Where does the program store its calendar backups and how do I import it back in?

This application found instances of duplication, created a "backup" calendar to fix the duplications, and apparently did so. However within seconds all the duplications returned (via iCloud sync). In the end, I had to go back and individually delete each duplication. I'm not sure whether this is the result of a limitation/bug in this application or in iCloud's syncing arrangement. Thus, I don't feel correct in giving any rating.

This is a result of iCloud re-instating the duplicates. For best results I recommend copying the calendar to the 'On My Mac' section of iCal and then de-duping from there. Once the duplicates are removed, delete and then replace the calendar on iCloud with the local copy.

Hi John, Thanks very much for the suggestion. If this situation happens again, I have saved your suggestion so that I can refer to it when I use iCal Dupe Deleter to fix it. Best, M.

I have tried to use this software but it de-dupes so well that it deletes nearly every ical entry I have - I assumed that if I had say "dinner" in five times for tonight that it would delete four and leave one. But it removes all of them - am I doing something wrong?

I searched everywhere for a product like this. I was so frustrated by so many duplicates. Very clean application and easy to use.

Worked perfectly for me, quickly removing over 300 duplicates. And, when I had a question, the author responded very quickly. Couldn't ask for more.

The frustration you feel with you see that one sync has erased part of your calendars is similar to that you feels when you see a lot on duplicate events, be on your phones/touchs, be on iCal. MobileMe seemed a good idea but I have wasted too much time with things like these. For me, this is the first and the last year of subscription. iCal Dupe Deleter does in a breeze what it's a long and tedious work for you. John deserves the donation. So, he can develope little gems like this.
