Where does iCal store data?

Hi,

I had my hard drive fail on me but I am still able to read most of it, so I need to recover my iCal database.

I actually did find it, but my 'to do' list is not there. Just my calender items.

Where does iCal store items in the 'to do' list?

David

Yes, user library, which is why I used the ~ symbol.

OK, that is sort of what I thought. So I wonder why all my 'to-do' items are missing? Any ideas?

in the ~/Library/Application Support/iCal folder then is a file called todos-info.plist. Maybe that has your to do list

Nope.

~/Application Support/iCal no longer exists in SnowLeopard.

I wish Apple would stop dicking around with data locations. Application Support is supposed to be where app data is stored.

How did you even find this 3 year old thread? Snow Leopard wasn't out 3 years ago so that WAS where the data was stored when the thread was created.

Snow Leopard (10.6) location

The answer to this question (no thanks to UngratefulNinja) is ~/Library/Calendars.
