I upgraded a BlackBerry Curve to AstraSync version 4.0.29 and the past 3 months of calendar appointments in Outlook have been deleted. The only appointment item that remains is a single weekly recurring setup by another user.

How do I recover the deleted appointment items?

How do I prevent this from happening?

I don't remember what version number the phone was on prior to today's upgrade. I do know it was a version 3.

Hello Ed,

Open your Blackberry calendar and select options > general calendar options > what do you have selected for "keep Appointments"?

The Blackberry will not delete reoccurring events even after the keep appointments interval has expired.

Hi John,

The setting is keep for 60 days.

After a little more research, the missing Outlook appointments appear to be from around December 15th through the end of February. There are appointments in the first couple of weeks of March that are still in the calendar.

In summary, appointments other than a single weekly recurring appointment are missing for about 2 1/2 months starting in the middle of December through the end of February.

I seem to be having a similar problem. I emptied out my BB calendar and sync'd with Outlook/Exchange using v4.0.29. Now a lot of appointments are missing from Outlook (and my BB). I can't figure out a rhyme or reason behind why some are kept and some are lost.

Very frustratrating.

Hello CharlesT,

The Calendar Settings in AstraSync is not related to the retention of calendar events, it is related to the syncing only.

How long the device retains the calendar events is set in:
BB Homescreen > Calendar > Options > General Options > Keep Appointments.

Set this to 'Forever' and your device should not delete the events.

However there is a known device bug where the device still deletes appointments, even though this setting is set to 'Forever'.

AstraSync then correctly syncs these deletions to the server.

If this is the case, other users have found that upgrading the OS on their device solved this. Please check to see if there is a suitable OS upgrade for the device available.
