I had to do a complete wipe and restore. I thought I was doing it right by having a solid backup (Norton Ghost). After completing the reinstallation of my software, I went to my backup to restore my calendar data from microsoft Works 7 which is very important to me. I cannot seem to find the data. Restoring Microsoft works 7 Doesn't populate the data that was in my calendar. I tried to restore selected items from C:/program files/common files, and the files from Microsoft shared with no luck. My computer prior to the restore was a real mess, so I do not want to restore a lot of corrupt files. Does anyone know where the data is stored?

From what I have read, mswkscal.wcd file is the calendar data file; I think it may be kept in a hidden folder, so be sure to do your search for it accordingly.

John,
thanks for the reply. I found the file this morning thanks to an unrelated knowledge base entry that hinted at the name of the file, MSWKSCAL.WS.

All is well again, the world is good, and I thank you sincerely for your effort!

Dave

I am happy to hear that you restored your calendar entries. One of the problems with Microsoft products, at least from a user point of view, is that stuff gets stored in very unlikely places (paths and folders) and is difficult to find.
Cheers,
John
