iCloud and Calendars - can't find a forum to put this in - sorry!

Q: iCloud and Calendars - can't find a forum to put this in - sorry!

Yep, looked everywhere on TSG but can't seem to find a suite dedicated to iCloud issues - this is as close as I can get but apologies if it is off subject here ..................... more than happy to move it if one of the Mods can tell me where to go!

Anyhow, just a quick post to express my total lack of understanding with iCloud - part of a big club from what I can see on Google!

I use iCloud for all my calendars and have been using the different colour calendars for specific events etc. such as say "red" for birthdays. "green" for appointments and to date have had no problems.

After a recent windows update (I think) I now find that ALL the colour calendars are visible on the left hand side of the calendar page when viewed on Outlook 07 with every one of the seven colours all having a tick in the box inside them and therefore of course displaying every one of them on the main viewing window on the right side.

I don't even have my default "calendar" anymore though the "anniversaries" calendar shows everything I have scheduled. Naturally, as I "uncheck" each colour calendar on the left, those on the right are removed PLUS their contents from what appears to be my default calendar (anniversaries)

How do I get back to just having the one basic iCloud calendar showing whilst still having the coloured ones in the background should I wish to just pull ONE of them up?

This does not appear a great explanation but hope the above makes sense? If not, I'll try to get a screenshot of the display and resubmit the post.

I try - usually unsuccessfully - to use iCloud between my iPhone5, iPad3, MS Outlook 2007 and Win 8.1 and have to admit that it seems like the cats breakfast in most regards. Syncing between the various devices and programs is an absolute nightmare and I find it a constant and losing battle trying to get the whole shebang stabilised.

Is it as bad as I am making out or am I just a dummy!

Thanks all ......................... the thumbnail below shows the mess I have got myself into!

Preferred Solution: iCloud and Calendars - can't find a forum to put this in - sorry!

I recommend trying the free service from Zip Cloud. It's currently our users' favorite backup and storage solution and will save you headaches down the line.

You can get it direct from this link http://goo.gl/rFYDxc. (This link will open the Zip Cloud homepage.)

A: iCloud and Calendars - can't find a forum to put this in - sorry!

I'd try unchecking everything but the icloud in the top batch. Problem you may suffer is when adding appointments in Outlook, it may want to default to the top calendar, but if you are making an appointment in the icloud calendar itself, you should be ok.

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I understand that one person may not have all the answers to all the parts of this; I am on an iphone forum as well, trying to figure ... Read more

I have searched this forum and many others but can't find the fix specific to my problem. My Google is being hijacked unlike others. It looks like Google but is not, the links on the google.com page point to porn sites. Anyway here is what I have done so far. I downloaded, updated, and ran the following, AdAware, Spybot, CWShredder. No problems found. I also have a Hijack This log file, let me know if I should post it.

So basically where I used to work, they'd twist anything about my personal life into harassment. They're probably reading this now because I've posted here in the past, so they save it in a folder and might read the forums religiously in case I come back or maybe they can find me through my i.p address. I use all different website forums a lot. When I get into a new thing, I usually have a few good questions and ask a forum. I.E, if they knew I got a dirt bike, they'd know to find dirt bike forums and read the entire thing and try and find me through context because I never use my real name. However, there have been times that I know they've read my posts because I can tell by hints they let out, but they are so out of the blue and I can't imagine how much they must have read in order to have found only a few posts by me using only context. I highly doubt they had me hacked, and again, the amount of time and effort they must have used to find me with just context and assumption is scary just to try and use anything about my personal life as harassment. So, I'm wondering if there's a 'simple' way to find my internet activity like through my i.p address? I've posted in a forum that displays i.p address, and besides, youtube makes it pretty easy to learn how to find someone's i.p.

Hi

I have just done a total system restore after having my computer breeched by credit card frauds. So, I went back to factory settings and did a destructive reformatting. Have done DEEP scans with several diffrent virussystems and now I am completely clear of any infections.

But I'm having a little problem, almost like sort of house keeping issue. My quick launch bar, I have a quite a few icons on it but I dont like to have it too long across the bottom of the screen, so I shove it in till only 3 are showing. BUT, there are two little arrows to the right of the icons that you click and then it shows you the rest of the icons and then you can click on them, (I hope that you get what I'm on about), but when I click on these two little arrows they don't work/show anything or do anything, either with or without the lock task bar on. Just nothing!

Can anyone tell me how to make this work please? I have been on this site http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and have tried using thses two files:

xp_taskbar_desktop_fixall.vbs & restoretaskbar.reg

and neither of these have made any difference whatsoever. I'm not brilliant at fixing omputers I just sort of dabble, so please don't expect too much from me or speak to complicatedly

Many thanks in advance for any help

You need to Copy the log file to your desktop before trying to access/read or make changes to the Log file. The CBS.LOG file is in use by the system and Locked so you can not make any changes to the file. 
In an Elevated Command prompt Past this command 

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

 
This will make a copy of the CBS.LOG file  on your desktop called SFCDETAILS.txt with only the SFC /scannow details. The CBS.LOG file can be VERY long.

Up til now, I have been happily syncing my iPhone4 and iPad2 with MS Outlook 2007 via my PC x iTunes.

Somehow, I recall choosing an option somewhere to use iCloud "cos it sounded OK" but now when I try to sync the devices on iTunes, it tells me that I cannot do this anymore as it is being done on iCloud and I will have duplicate contacts and all sorts of dire problems.

At the risk of being old fashioned, how do I get rid of iCloud and go back to the procedure first mentioned in Para one ..........?

I feel much happier with it and not having vast numbers of contacts, appontments etc. would prefer to leave iCloud out of it for the moment.

How do I do this thanks?

Anyway, took it to the local computer nerd store & they say that iCloud is changing the resolution. The service tech went right in & adjusted the resolution through iCloud, but when clicked on again, the resolution & the colors invert.

I have a W7 laptop, an iPad & a MacBook Air and I am thinking of storing photos on one on the above mentioned as a safe guard. I have absolutely no idea at all how this iCloud etc stuff works as it is beyond me in my old age. So what I am looking for is advice on which one I should use and how to go about it.

My boss and I used me.com very successfully for his calendar and contacts, but awhile back when he upgraded he was moved to icloud.com, and I can no longer access the site from work. It is not blocked by the firewall, and the browser (firefox) works fine going to any other site. The error I get is: The proxy server is refusing connections.
Nothing has been changed on the browser settings and the browser works fine otherwise. I'm lost without access to this site.
 

A:Can't access icloud.com

I can get to that site with both my Opera and Firefox browsers but, when I do, it makes it clear that I will need a device (iphone or iPad?) with iOS 5 or a Mac computer with OS X to setup my Apple ID and access it.

I don't know anything about proxy servers but it sounds like it is something your workplace setup or ISP may be using. Is there anyone in your office that deals with techie stuff who might be able to help?

Another possibility is that using the Windows version of Apple's Safari browser might help, but that's complete guesswork on my part; http://www.apple.com/safari/ (although it does state that it works with iCloud).

I have windows 7 and outlook 2010 on a PC. When linking to icloud and enabling it to synch with icloud, icloud took the contacts off my computer (at least it seems that way). In trying to resolve the issue and talking with Apple and Omnitech, a variety of solutions were tried. I now have all my contacts in the right categories showing up on my PC, but it appears that they are not on the PC but in the cloud. My goal is to copy one of my categories, mailing list, into a  new separate folder in the folder list in order to use it to merge with Word and make labels. In the past, I could right click on the mailing list category and drag it to the new folder that I created. It would then ask if I wanted it to copy the file there or move it. I copied it to the new folder and then was able to merge it with word. Currently, when I try to drag the file to the folder, it indicates that this action can not be done. It appears to me that the reason this is occurring is that the contact file is in the cloud not on the computer.  ?? I would like to create a file with my contacts on the PC with the contacts in the right categories and not duplicating what is currently showing up from the cloud. I believe once I do this I will again be able to copy the category to the new folder.

OK, I installed iCloud on my PC. I created a document in Pages on my iPad. When I go to the iCloud manager on my PC, the document is listed as being there, but I can't open it. So what good is it to me that it's there? Is there some way to open it that I'm not getting?

OK, I install iWorks. Now I can upload the document to iWorks, and open it and read it on my PC. But I can't edit it. So OK, I can download it in Word and edit it. But now I don't know how to save those edits to the original document in iWorks, so I can have them on my iPad.

What am I missing? What am I doing wrong?

I have a new HP laptop with Windows 8. I have downloaded iTunes and iCloud and both appear in my Downloads folder - but I can't get them to run/install. When I right click and select "run as administrator" I get the pop up box to allow changes to the computer. I click YES but then nothing ever happens. If I try to delete the download I get an error message saying "can't do as the file is open in iTunes installer.

My daughter's Windows 10 Laptop gives her a notification that her iCloud is almost full. She gets it about every 20 minutes or so. She knows nothing about iCloud and neither do I. So, how do I get rid of this notification?

I have a 500gb HD in my Windows 10 Laptop and I also have a Windows 10 Tablet with 9gb spare from 32gb storage with one USB port.

As the bulk of my data is the on 500 drive in the laptop.

What is the best way to share this data between the Laptop and Tablet. Also adding to these two current machines, I am also looking into an iPad. Again the iPad only has 32 or 64gb storage.

Any tips of how solve this, with using MS Cloud/One Drive or iCloud with iPad or of any other method.

thanks
 

A:MS Cloud/One Drive or iCloud from PC

The "best" solution depends on.....

a) How much data (in GB) you need to share between these 3 devices
b) The budget that you have for this

I've had this problem where a couple months ago my email stopped refreshing. To sort this I tried to delete the email from my computer and the re login. When I did this it deleted all my past emails and still won't retrieve my new ones. When I try to have a look at the sync settings it won't let me click on it. Anyone know how to fix it?

iCloud services is using 99,700 K of memory. That seems excessive. Is it? What should I do to fix it?
 
Thanks.

A:iCloud Services using 99,700K of RAM

I have not updated iTunes in a long time. To update it today I had to launch a clean boot. iCloud services is now using 33,000K. Is that normal?
 
During the update to iTunes a message "could not start Apple mobile devices services" was received. I hit retry a couple of times then I hit ignore. Is that a major issue?
 
Thanks.

I can't set up my iCloud email address on my Win 7 or Win 10 laptops. I've tried the me.com and the icloud.com but after "churning" for 2 or 3 minutes it says the connection failed. It works on my iPad with no problems. Does any one have a solution?

Is there a way (when I send a link to someone so they can download my files) that they can download a whole folder, rather than image by image. I've made a folder and put photos in that folder. I sent a link to myself to see how it worked. When the link is clicked, it takes me to the images (rather than just the folder itself). From there, I can only download each one, one by one. This would take quite some time to do as most of what I'm uploading in a folder has as many as 50 images/photos.

Any feedback is welcome! Thank you!
 

A:iCloud download question

Yes, this makes sense. Thank you so much!

Can anyone suggest a good calendar program (for lack of a better name) that will allow me to go backwards 10-12 years or so (as well as froward from here on) and insert "events" (not exactly meetings or tasks like MS Outlook's calendar feature).

I know it sounds kinda wierd but I wanted to build a database of certain events related to my work history (i.e., hours/jobs) and I've got these old paper calendars in a drawer taking up space which I'd like to get rid of, transferring important dates/milestones to the computer. I use Outlook email, and the calendar feature with its start times/appointments/tasks is a little too cumbersome. I just want to enter an event, maybe color it, and look at a month-at-a-glance. I dont even know if such a application exists.
