ICS file from 343 to 4kb and all but 1 event gone 1 Month, 1 Week ago  
Thank God for backups. I am OK, but don't want this to ever happen again.

In all my years working with Rainlendar this has never happened. We have Pro and keep our file in a shared volume on the server so we can load each others calendar.

Here is what I did:

I double click on an event in the monthly calendar view.
Turned off the alarm
Closed out of the event
POOF - the all 3 calendar files no longer displayed events in the calendar.
The main calendar file originally had 343KB was reduced to 4 and had only one event.
That event was the only event displayed.
The other two calendars no longer displayed, but their events were still searchable and displayed in the Manager app.

All three files show in the calendar options page as loaded.
Calendar menu showed them to be selected for display.

Is an ICS file size of 343kb a problem?

The log is from after the calendar file got deleted so unfortunately I cannot say what caused the problem.

It's not recommended to keep the calendar files on a shared network drive since if the network connection is not stable or if the calendar file gets edited from two places at the same time it can get corrupted. You should instead use e.g. CalDAV server or Google Calendar if you want to share the calendars between users.

For security we are not allowed to use anything Google. Can you recommend anything that can run native on either a Mac OX X server or a Windows 2007 Standard Server. We have both behind a firewall.

Would also like to have easy to follow instructions for install and management. I am a SQL DBA and have installed all the server software in our office.

Thanks for any information or links that you can supply.

If you are sharing the calendar between multiple users and you cannot use 3rd party services then a CalDAV server is recommended. Unfortunately I cannot suggest any specific server since I have not used one myself. If you have Mac OS X then Apple's CalendarServer (www.calendarserver.org/) is probably a good choice although i don't know how much work it takes to set it up.

There is a list of servers in the CalDAV wikipedia page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CalDAV#Server
