Per­sis­tent Cal­en­dar er­rors

Mac Format - - SOS MAC -

My iCal app reg­u­larly warns me with “The server re­sponded: 403 to op­er­a­tion CalDAVSet Prop­erty QueuableOper­a­tion ”. It then tells me I have to go off­line or ig­nore the er­ror mes­sage. Ig­nor­ing it just makes it come back later. (I’m run­ning OS X Lion, by the way.) An­thony Bran­nock One of your cal­en­dars prob­a­bly has some en­tries that are cor­rupted or in­valid. You should be able to see which one from the text of the er­ror mes­sage above the line you quote, but if not, try uncheck­ing your cal­en­dars from the side­bar one by one, un­til the mes­sage stops ap­pear­ing. Now you can try delet­ing all the old en­tries in that cal­en­dar and re-en­abling the cal­en­dar. Another way to ap­proach it would be to back up your cal­en­dars first us­ing File > Ex­port > Cal­en­dar Ar­chive. Now open iCloud Pref­er­ences and uncheck the Cal­en­dars box. Sign out too, for good mea­sure. Close and re­open Cal­en­dar and then re-en­able iCloud sync­ing in iCloud pref­er­ences. If even that doesn’t fix it, go to your Li­brary folder (Finder > Go > Go to Folder… and en­ter ~/Li­brary) and delete Pref­er­ences/com.ap­ple.Cal­en­darA­gent and Pref­er­ences/com.ap­ple.iCal.plist. Restart Cal­en­dar and re-en­ter your ac­count info and see if the er­rors go away. As a fi­nal re­sort, you could delete the ~/Li­brary/ Cal­en­dars folder as well (or drag it tem­po­rar­ily to the desk­top, at least), but this will delete any en­tries you might have in cal­en­dars that aren’t backed up.
