    Is Time Machine backing up my iCal events and contacts? The reason I ask is because I have it set so they are stored ONLY on iCloud, NOT locally. Is this getting backed up too by Time Machine? I hope so! Because, if something were to fail, or if I were ever to accidentally delete a contact, I might like to be able to travel to the past and recuperate that contact.

    Thanks for your insight,
    Greg

    Easy to check.

    Add a contact, initiate a time machine backup, delete the contact

    Then check time machine to see if you can find the deleted contact.

    Hey! I checked it out following your instructions, and it worked. I tried it with my Contacts, added, deleted, checked in the Time Machine archive and it was there! So, it seems that it does back it up. Good news.
