Delete collection suggestion



  • I was testing the connection with the remote calendar server, and I tapped on the menu bar on CalDAV and selected "Refresh calendar list".

    After refreshing, the app displayed TWO instances of the same active calendar that I was using.

    I long-tapped on a duplicate calendar and selected "Delete collection".

    Both duplicates on the app, and the ENTIRE (important and active) calendar on the server - got deleted!

    And I have no backup data!

    This option should come with a warning that says something like:

    "WARNING! YOUR ENTIRE CALENDAR SITTING IN YOUR REMOTE SERVER WILL ALSO BE DELETED! DO YOU WANT TO PROCEED?"

    Sorry that you lost your data. But DAVdroid is no back-up tool – it's a management tool, and of course a user should be able to manage their collection (incl. a delete operation). There is a popup that warns you about just this:

  • Thank you for your reply.

    It was a painful lesson.
