ical from iphone back to mac

by clairesy / March 30, 2009 1:33 AM PDT

I recently had to restore my entire macbook pro, erasing everything on it. I have all my ical info on my iphone but do not know how to get it from the phone and put it back on my computer. I am unable to sync my iphone with my computer for fear of it erasing my ical info that still remains intact on my phone. How can I take it from my phone and get it back on my computer??

Have you figured out how to do this yet? I'm having the same issue.

Once you have the computer running again

In reply to: update?

run the Sync process, to MobileMe, which should bring down all your contacts and iCal stuff from your phone to your computer.
That's how iCal events created on the iPhone magically appear on your computer. They are not put there by attaching the iPhone to your computer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
