Why are my calendar events disappearing on my windows phone?

Q: Why are my calendar events disappearing on my windows phone?

As of a few days ago, most of my calendar appointments from Oct 2015-Aug 2016 disappeared. One reocurring event from this period is still there, but all other events apart from Sept 13th 2016 have disappeared! Just suddenly! Please can someone tell me why this has happened? How can I restore the events I've lost??

I have been using the calendar on my phone only (Windows 8.1), and do not use the calendar in my Outlook account on my PC. I'm assuming the phone is syncing with this Outlook calendar which is empty. I only want to sync my email (via my Optusnet account) on my phone and NOT the calendar as it's more convenient to use the phone calendar.
I can't find any way of doing this.
I've seen suggestions for turning off calendar deletions via, and although I have an account I don't use it.
Any suggestions for fixing this so I can keep the calendar history on my phone?

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

I changed the password to my Microsoft account a couple of days ago and now Facebook events won't sync to my Windows Phone, nor my Surface 2, nor in the online microsoft calendar application.

It shows old events but new ones doesn't pop up. I've tried various settings in the apps and in my Microsoft account settings online. I've tried removing the connection between my FB account and my MS account and reconnecting. I've tried removing the FB account from my phone and resyncronizing (couldn't find such an option on the Surface) but it changes nothing. Facebook events is enabled in the calendar settings on both devices and if I try to manually export my FB calendar to my microsoft calendar it tells me it cannot sync the same account twice.

So according to settings everything should work but nothing works at all!

How can I resolve this?

Previously I was using Outlook Calendar, which allowed me to color-code individual events. I assigned a color to a particular type of event. I don't see this option on Windows Live Calendar. Am I overlooking something? I understand that I can adjust the overall color scheme, but that is not what I'm after. Thanks for your help.

I've been experiencing a problem with the Windows 10 Calendar app - it shows duplicate events.
I'm using a Microsoft account ( and have it configured on the computer. Mail app Works ok and syncs. Calendar App shows duplicate events. If I access the same calendar on the calendar shows OK with no duplicates. On another computer with the same Setup the calendar does not show duplicates, Works as expected so this seems a problem confined to this one computer only.

This Windows 10 instalation is about a month old (installed from scratch - no upgrade from 8) and has all published MS updates instaled and also all app updates.

Have tried to uninstall the Calendar app, rebooted, reinstall the app, but duplicates persist.

Any ideas? Thank you.

My events only show up in the top half of the day in the monthly view so I can only get two events to show. The arrow points to more messages but it seems like I should be able to fit three events at least.

A:How can I have more than two events show up in my monthly calendar?

If you talking about Outlook calendar, it seems like this parameter depends on your window size. Third item shows up when your windows is about 730 pixels high (standard scaling), fourth - 900 pixels high. You can minimize ribbon (little arrow in the top right corner of the window) or change resolution to get more useful space on the screen, but looks like that's about it.

Hello. All of my events in my Yahoo calendar have disappeared. I've gone 3 weeks now without access. I have a business account with Yahoo so they have "escalated" the issue, which I now understand is a joke since their front line people are outsourced and give me the same scripted "working on it" BS every time I call and today advised me that they have no method of communication with their escalation team. I have given up on them fixing it. I thought it was a sync issue with my iPhone/iPad however I cannot even pull up the data on the yahoo site under my login via my Windows XP or Windows 10 laptops. My business and personal life are failing as a result of this. All events in my life are stored on their servers and unfortunately, because I assumed that because my data was housed with one of the largest ISP's in existence, therefore THIS could never happen...I never did back up the data anywhere else. I thought I had on my iCloud but Apple corrected me stating that is not the case because Yahoo is a 3rd party.

I am running Outlook 2003 on a Dell Laptop with WIndows XP. For the longest time, my Calendar has been automatically deleting almost all events older than 3 or 4 weeks. I have turned off the AutoArchiving function all together, but it still happens. I also have tried looking for any old calendar events in my Archive.PST file, but there does not seem to be anything in these files worthwhile.

Setup: Outlook 2002 in a domain to an Exchange server.

We have a shared calendar to which everyone can view and add events. If an employee takes a day off, they put an all-day event in the shared calendar that shows them as being off that day, thereby allowing everyone else to know who is in and who is not. Normally, everyone can see those events with no problem when viewing a single day. The problem occurred on Friday when 13 people took the day off. If anyone had their screen resolution set to 800x600 (which most people do), then they could only see the first 10 all-day events with no scroll bars available to see the other three. The only way for them to view the other three is to change their screen res to 1024x768 and then close and reopen Outlook. Problem is, most people have 15" LCD monitors, so using 1024x768 is not acceptable, especially considering that some need 640x480 to view their screen.

As you might imagine, I am having a devil of a time finding anything online about this and how to change it. I have scoured through Outlook,,, and this board to find an answer, but I have found nothing helpful. I am hoping that their is some sort of registry tweak or something to make this go bye-bye.

If anyone has any idea at all on how to fix this, please oh please won't you help?!? And would someone please think of the children!

Just installed Win10 yesterday, and taking a first look at the Calendar app. Unless I have overlooked something, this app has a flaw that makes it almost not worth using.

I'm using the app to display my Google Calendar events, a month at a time. In many cases, I have enough events scheduled for a single day that they won't all fit in the cell in Month View. Is there really no way to display all the events for a given date (including the ones that don't fit) in Month View? (For example, in the Calendar app on my phone, it is usually the case that not all the events for a given date show in the grid, but tapping the date in question displays a pop-up that shows them all). This app just runs them off the bottom of the cell. It doesn't even alert you to the fact that there are additional events for that date that it isn't displaying!

Dare I hope I'm missing something here?


A:Calendar: Multiple events in month view

I guess nobody shares my angst for the perceived shortcomings of the Calendar app.

All the same, thought I'd mention that I installed an app from the Store called One Calendar that seems to be free, and does not suffer from the above-stated problem (when viewing in Month View, if there are 'n' events that don't fit in the grid, One Calendar displays a little '+n' at the top of the cell, alerting you to the fact that there's more you're not seeing; then clicking on the cell brings up the Day View, so you can see it all).

All's well that ends well.

I've been syncing a Windows Phone with my Outlook calendar and contacts for many years, but the last few weeks it seems to be not syncing events.
For example, two weeks ago I entered a new Calendar item for today on my phone, but it has still never appeared on the desktop. The item appears in the correct default "Calendar-Outlook" on the phone, in the same color as the default calendar items which have synced from the desktop. When I check the Calendar at, the event appears correctly, in the same color as the rest of the default calendar items.
I have on my desktop PC: Windows 10, Outlook 2013, Hotmail Connector to sync. I do not have an Exchange account.
Phone is Lumia 1020 running Windows Phone 8.1.
T-mobile is my provider, which has been having multiple connection issues in my area lately, which might be unrelated, but voicemails and texts are delivered 1 to 24 hours late.

I created an event using the voice recognition in Cortana on my Lumia 930. Fine. Worked beautifully, but it didn't sync with my calendar or Outlook so I created it again manually later. Then I wanted to delete the event Cortana created ... and I couldn't. I have restarted the handset, checked within the 'Reminders' section of Cortana's menu, and tried to delete it within the Calendar app. I still seem unable to remove this rogue event.
I contacted Microsoft support (or their hopeless UK representatives B2X with their slogan 'Chat with an expert', which is just a joke) and was first told to 'enable deletion of Cortana items within the Cortana menu'. There is no such option. Then they told me to delete it from It doesn't sync with, which is how I came to create the second event. Finally I was told that the only way to remove the rogue 'Cortana events' would be to do a factory reset on my, which seems a little over the top.
There has to be a better way.

I suspect that I am not able to do what I would like to but will ask the questions just in case...
I use the Ms calendar on my Lumia 920 which in turn updates the online version at the Ms Live website as well as the Windows Live calendar accessed via my email client.
All good so far.
Problems started when I gave the wife access to my calendar but she keeps forgetting to check it before making appointments for us (which conflict with important things like my golf).
I thought there was a way of having the calendar create an automatic email whenever I added a new event and have that email sent to the wife to alert her to my latest meeting/tee time.
Checked all places where I would have expected to find an option to make the wife a recipient of alert emails but have failed. Seems I can send an update/new event alert to myself but to nobody else.
Can somebody confirm that to be the case. (If I have selected the wrong category for this posting then apologies.)
Thanks in advance.

What if you add your wife in the entry you make in your agenda ("add someone" required or better optional) in that case she will get an e-mail (to except) and this entry will also be in your wives calendar.
Not sure if this is the right category but I also do not know which category should fit better.:)

Hi all,

I have a problem with a calendar sync between my new laptop with Windows 8.1 and my Lumia with Windows Phone 8. Ironic right? Anyhow, on my phone I use my account for calendar. With my old outlook it worked quite good. It was syncing with cable
plugging and it was quite instantly.

Now, I set up my account on my laptop and calendar picked up all event like on my phone. BUT, since then every entry I put in my phone or laptop calendar are not syncing. I am using accounts on both. I figured how to sync gmail on my old
outlook so it works on Windows Phone but I still created account because of these compatibility issues.

Anyone knows how to get them to sync these new entries?

Help, recently (as in about two weeks ago) my Outlook2000 calendar has suddenly started showing all the appointments (birthdays from contacts and and holidays are all I have use it for) as "Multi-day events".

Does anyone have any idea what caused this or how to fix it with out having to delete all the birthdays and reenter them individually?

Welcome to the forums @CParah . Sorry to hear that your drive bit the dust, I know what a pain that can be!

I don't think there's a way to do what you are asking unfortunately. I'm guessing you're storing calendar information locally, rather than using an Exchange/Office365/Google server? There are some free options to store your calendar information on a cloud server so that you can just sync to recover the data (and access it on your phone, etc...). Not much help now, but may help you out should it happen again in the future.

Have you still got the hard drive? There are data recovery tools that may help you get back some data, but perhaps you have already tried this.

Last week I had a registry corruption that forced me to revert to a registry copy from right after I installed Win2k. (I back up my data regularly, but I'd gotten careless about backing up the registry. Learned my lesson the hard way. I have a current ERD now...)

I've gotten most apps running OK again, but I've run into a problem with Outlook. I use it only for the calendar functions. I can open the calendar and all my existing appointments are there and OK. I can delete existing appointments. But if I try to enter a new appointment, or save changes to existing appointments, I get an error: "The item could not be saved to the folder. The folder has been deleted or removed, or you do not have permission."

Since I can access and delete appointments, obviously there are no folder access problems. I searched on the MS KB and on the web, and everything I could find referencing this error message says "you've exceeded the max mailbox size, go delete some mail." I don't use Outlook mail, and my calendar file is tiny, so that's not it.

I'm guessing there's some problem with the registry. It's also possible I outsmarted myself when I recovered from the registry crash. I had to recreate my login ID, but when I did, W2k assigned me to the folder "Gary.W2k" in Documents and Settings. (Actually I think it had done this before, and this time it created "Gary.W2k.000.")

Hello there,
I need some help on importing/exporting facebook events onto my [Android] phone calendar.

I have:

two facebook accounts (one personal and one business)
a google calendar [google] account.
a hotmail account

ATM: My phone's calendar is synced with google calendar and my hotmail calendar, which syncs automatically and frequently (maybe even pushed but I dunno).

On the facebook app, I have setup my personal facebook account - I have synced all my personal facebook contacts on to my phone. However, this app provides no option to sync my facebook events onto my phone calendar.

I thought because I have synced google calendar onto my phone, I might do this - go to Facebook 'export events' and import them by URL into Google Calendar or subscribe through hotmail calendar, however when I do this only 1 event shows up in either google calendar or hotmail calendar.

So right now I'm stuck.

What I want to do:
Import events from both facebook accounts onto my phone's calendar, taking into account the above situation. Preferably without installing more apps on my phone, which can barely last a day in terms of battery life so the less apps the better.

Can you guys please help me out?

First backup your current profile by exporting the PST somewhere easy to find. Next delete your current profile. Go to Programs and Features, select MS Office, then choose to Change and use the Repair feature.
Reboot, manually go to Windows Update and look for new updates, be sure to look through the optional updates and select and download any Office Updates, especially those for Outlook. Reboot the machine, fire up Outlook and create a new profile. If anything is missing, import the original PST but make sure you choose to Ignore Duplicates. That will extract and import only what is not already there.

I have a Lumia 640 phone. I installed the Windows update app and it told me I could upgrade to W10. I did. For the most part it went OK but I have signed in to my Outlook account a dozen times but it does not show up when I go to "manage accounts" My other pop mail shows up fine, but I don't have any contacts. Also my calendar is not showing any of my information that is in my schedule.
It is like it is not recognizing my sign in information. Very annoying.

First, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, but I wasn't sure where to put it.

Here's my predicament:

I have a laptop, a desktop and a brand new Omnia phone with Windows Mobile 6.1.

I like them all in each their own way, yet it is quite hard to get them to all work together - help me remedy this please!

I use Mozilla Thunderbird to read my emails (through an IMAP server) on both my laptop and computer. I use the lightning addon to get a calendar feature for appointments. I don't even have my laptop and desktop synchronized - not to mention my phone!

The other thing I look at was Windows Live. I found this thing called Windows Live Mesh - basically lets you store files in an online space and so everything will be sychronized automatically - this is however for files only - and support for mobile devices isn't out yet.

My Ideal situation is a sync that happens OTA (over the internet - in otherwords, no need to physically connect my phone to my computer) which will sync my Contacts, Calendar, To do list, and files. Emails are already synced since I use IMAP, but the other things I really need synced!

Any ideas?

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her account, then you may need to generate an app password from her account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: PrihlŠste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

Have been trying for a while to sync windows 10 calendar on my laptop with windows 10 calendar on my wife's laptop. No luck so far.

I have linked both individual windows 10 calendars with our individual google calendars, and events transfer successfully from both windows 10 calendars, through both google calendars, but will not download to the other windows 10 calendar.

Is that clear?

What I am trying to say is that I can create an event on my windows 10 calendar, it transfers to my google calendar, and then to my wife's google calendar, but it does not load on to my wife's windows 10 calendar. This works both ways.

Evidently, Xbox Music isn't available for Windows 10. I searched in the Store and it wasn't there. Groove Music has a new look but apparently (I spent maybe 20 minutes looking it over) has very similar functionality. The basic stuff is there. My problem with it is the FF and REW functionality when I play my MP3s. More often than not I play 3 hour long MP3s. If I'm using Xbox Music, and I'm, say, at 1:49 and I put my finger on and hold the > icon, it started to FF at a very modest rate but as long as I keep my finger on the icon the rate gradually increases. I LOVE that functionality. It does the same thing with the < REW function. In Groove Music I'm stuck with the one slow rate. That sucks.

This one has been bugging me for sometime now.
In Administrative Tools of Windows 7 Home premium 32 bit.
There is Event Viewer. Within Event Viewer there is Custom Views, when that folder is clicked an Icon appears called Administrative Events, to which the middle pane shows a list of ERRORS.
Ok for the life of me I can not figure out how to clear or delete those error events from the log. I want to get rid of any error logs older than a week and some of these date back to December 2009.
I have checked every where within event viewer to clear, remove or delete these old entries.
What am I over looking here?

Thanks in advance for any help you people can provide.

A:Administrative Events-Windows 7

Custom Views -> Administrative Logs are combination of various logs combined together using a filter. Normally it contains Application, System, Security, and many more so that an administrator does not have to jump from one log to another log. It is just a filtered log view and not the actual log.- If you want to clear a log then select an individual log like Application and then right click on it, select Clear log. - You can also set the size limitation to smaller one like 1024 KB (which is 1MB) (by default it is 20MB). 1024 KB should be able to contain events of past 7 days or so. To set log size, right click on a log and select Properties and there you would see options.As soon as you limit the size, or clear the log, you would see the changes reflected in the filter (Custom Views -> Administrative Logs)You can identify a filter by a funnel like icon. The actual logs have a word pad like icon. You can also create your own filtered log views.

Super annoying bug (or user error?) where whenever I create an event in Windows calendar, after hitting save it moves it one day forward.

So for example, if I create an event for 01/12/2015, it will isntead show up on the 31/11/2015. If I edit the event, it will show the 31/11/2015 instead. If I change it back to 01/12/2015 and hit save, it goes back to 31/11/2015.

Hi everyone,

I've been struggling with freezing issues on my computer for the better part of a year. I can't tell if it's a software or hardware related issue.

Processor: Intel i5-2500k (3.30GHz running at 4.30GHz)
RAM: 12GB 1600MHz
WD 2TB Drive as primary.

My Windows 8.1 desktop will freeze at random moments without a given notice. There doesn't seem to be any type of event that triggers it more than others and no way that I've noticed to predict when it could happen. I've gone as little as 10minutes running smoothly before it freezing to as long as 3 days before it decides to freeze. The freezes lock everything. All hardware stops responding. However, typically, I can still hear a bit of audio for a minute or so before that begins to hang as well, but if there was a media player, for example, the seek bar will stop moving.
I have a Logitech G510 keyboard with backlighting. When the computer freezes, if I turn off the light of my keyboard, it won't turn back on, just furthering the idea that the hardware is locked.

I've attached the logs as I've been asked to do.

I can't tell if it's hardware as I've changed GFX cards from an older Nvidia GTX260 to an AMD R7 260X. That seemed to have helped with some issues but not all. I recently did a fresh OS install hoping it would help but the problem has returned. I'm wondering if it's a pattern based on some of the applications and drivers that I've installed or if it's really a hardware issue. Maybe a failing harddrive, ram or e... Read more

Current Problem: System fails boot in Windows 7 following series of scans and tools ran.
Problems began after running Combofix
Prior to my running of Combofix the system was very slow, always high memory and cpu use (much due to only 2 gig memory and number of programs running).  I also had occasions where when writing email the characters would disappear after being typed in and continue to delete text.  Also the system was set up with the c: drive ssd as the operating system only, and additional partitions/drive as program and data drives.  Over the last several months those additional program and data drives would power down and sleep during use and have to wake up quite often. I thought was unusual behavior.
History of bleeping computer support from Trojans,Viruses.  (see postings) Have been referred to this area for help
Ran ComboFix then sought help from Bleeping
I ran combo fix before doing my research -  following which I could not open explorer, kaspersky, control panel etc.  I am using Chrome browser on Windows 7.  When the combofix ran it did indicate that it set a restore point.
At this point the computer currently was still booting fully fine into win 7 not just by using safe mode.  It connects to the internet, many programs run but cannot open some dialog windows such as explorer, control panel, kaspersky to name a few.

I check Reliability Monitor from time to time. I was taken aback today to find Windows Mail creating a critical event and appearing as 'Stopped working' each day for the past six days. There are five listings on day one, five on day two, two on day three, one on day four, two on day five and two on day six. 'Check for a solution' provides no solution. I do have to close and reopen Windows Mail on some occasions when it is stuck at 'Connecting'. The second attempt usually results in Windows Mail receiving mail. That, however, has been a situation that I have lived with for a long time and I am unaware that it caused a critical event in the past. Now, it seems, a critical event is created each time I open Windows Mail. That, I can monitor now I know it is happening but I wondered whether anyone can throw more light on this matter.
Please move this to 'Performance and Maintenance' if more appropriate.

Just to be clear do you mean the Windows 8 mail app or the old Windows mail from Vista times?

My Windows 8.1 computer generate a lot administrative events that are warnings and critical and errors and I want to remove all the events

A:Delete Administrative events in Windows 8.1 event viewer

I'm not sure if you just want to clear the log or that you want to fix the problems that are causing the events. See both below:In the Event Viewer there is a Clear button on the right each of the five headings when selected. This is how it can be automated if that's what you want: you want to chase up the events then that is a very long winded job because each event has to be tackled separately. There is no overall way to tackle them. Mostly they are minor Windows bugs that can be ignored. The best approach is to only get involved with events when some problem comes along - looking for one that appeared at exactly the same time might give a clue to the issue. Windows 8.1 events automated Help is virtually non-existent.

Vista Home Basic Service Pack 2 32bit 2 gig

Hello and thank you in advance for any help.

I have been encountering an extreme amount of errors/events, system crashes/dumps recently. There are so many, that I would like to just post my event log but I'm not sure how to do that.

Things that I have done recently before all of the errors, that may or may not be related:

I began having problems with my printer, so I uninstalled it and then tried to reinstall with the USB (which always worked for me in the past) but my computer doesn't recognize it (yet it beeps when I plug it in).

Updated to newer version of Avast, Windows updates
I noticed a lot of Bonjour in the the event viewer, so I tried to uninstall but the Windows installer quits. After several reboots, Bonjour is no longer in the add/remove programs list. I also uninstalled all Apple programs.

A:Extreme amount of Windows errors/events, crashes

I would perform a system restore back to before the problem occurred.

As far as I can tell, it doesn't look like the functionality is there. Although, I have been seeing a lot of feedback about this very topic, so it might be something that is being worked on.

Hello All,

Frequent reader here, you guys and gals are great. Anyways, Even Google forums don't have the correct solution to sign in with another email address then return to the normal one. The problem is that with when you sign in with Google Calendar (all of a sudden) as a regular google calendar user, not an apps user, it gives a message saying Oops another Calendar has been created for... Then it disables a lot of the features. How do we get our calendars back, please help!

Thanks so much.
