    I have been running Entourage and sync services for quite a while. After doing the most recent OSX updates, Sync services popped up 60 event conflicts. They all looked the same, but I went through each one anyway.

    I opened up Entourage after that, and now all my "all day" events are duplicated. They show up that way in iCal as well.

    Does anyone know of a script that is out there to delete dupes in either Entourage or iCal?

    Thanks.

    Go here, scroll down to the Calendar Events section of the page. There's two scripts there, I just used Jolly Roger's Remove Duplicate Calendar Events today. Takes a while (I had about 1400 events to scrub), and it'll crank up the fan for a while, but it works as advertised. You still have to approve every deletion manually, though.

    Thanks John. I'll try that.

    I don't suppose you experienced the same problem under the same circumstances...

    Um, no, it was an accidental reimport of the master ics file instead of a flight itinerary vcs file. Twice. :eek:

    Ah, I see.

    Well, that didn't work for me. Keeps halting on various errors.

    Still looking for suggestions.

    Thanks though!
