    After installing Leopard 10.5.3 earlier today, and now opening iCal for the first time a few hours later, I have come to notice that every single event on my Calendars has been duplicated. Sometimes twice, and occasionally 3 times. Most of the duplicates are events that I have upload to the Calendar through an .ics file.

    Since I have a lot of data, and rely heavily on my calendar (and having it sync to my iPod Touch) this is quite a problem. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks.

    If you had iCal synching to .Mac and it was up to date re-synch iCal and have it replace everything on your local iCal. That would get rid of the duplicates.

    Sadly no .mac.

    My iPod touch hasn't been updated since I installed the update so everything on it is the "Correct way" wish there were some way to backup from that.

    I have time machine running, is there any way to retrieve and replace an iCal file from the hours before I installed the update?

    That is strange. I didn't have any events duplicate, but I did have some calendars that I had previously deleted reappear. It was easy to delete them again so no harm done to me.
