« IMPORTANT: Upgrade to Spanning Sync v1.1 Before Upgrading to Leopard to Avoid Data Loss | Main | The State of Spanning Sync: 10 Days After Leopard »



Hi Charlie. Just upgraded to 1.1.1. When performing a sync, it asked if I wanted to delete 85 events from my iCal. There is no list of events that it wants to delete, so I'm not sure if I maybe do want to do this (I noticed I have a lot of duplicates in events that occurred in the past). Please let me know what progress is being made on some of these issues.

Hi Lee,

You're running into the bug we've found with Leopard. Unless you actually deleted those 85 events, you should disallow that sync and perform a client reset ("Reset..." ,"Reset info on this computer"). Allow the sync to complete (it may take a while) and you should be all set.

If you run into any problems, please email us at support@spanningsync.com.
