    Hi all,

    After much delay I finally upgraded my mid-2007 iMac from 10.7.5 to El Cap. 10.11.6. Everything seems to have gone very well. Surprisingly well, given the straight leap from older to newer (and this old Mac can't run Sierra, so that's it for this old beast).

    However, iCal is not showing any data beyond what is "found in mail". All my previous data is missing! I don't know why it didn't move with everything else. I presume the iCal .plist in Preferences would've been integrated, but no.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Was your calendar synced via iCloud?

    See steps here: scroll down to the section:

    Turn off iCloud Calendar

    Doh! That was it - all my old calendar info was on iCloud, which I've previously never used. Thanks for the tip, and I have figured things out from there.
