It was a Sunday evening, and I had just missed an important seminar, but my Google Calendar events vanished in thin air with no schedules and events left. Maybe I should not have been relying on Google so much, but I need it as soon as possible to keep up with my future schedules. What could have happened, and can I restore my Google Calendar Events?

The answer is Yes! We can easily restore lost or deleted Google Calendar events. But before going through the restoration process we will look out for the reasons behind such a situation.

Why were the Google Calendar events deleted?

There are a few reasons for the sudden disappearance of Google Calendar events.

Logging in with different devices

Imagine you use various devices, including laptops, desktops, and tablets. After signing into your Google account from another device, you may notice that events on your Google calendar have vanished. To access your Google calendar on any device you use, it must be synced. Logging in to your Google account from a separate device will not work.

Synchronization failure

Google Calendar lets you manage all of your events and activities from any device. You’ll want to access it anytime and anywhere. Google Calendar events can be lost if there are errors in the synchronization process. You should also transfer photos from Google Drive to an external hard drive in case of such sync issues.

Corrupted cache files

App data is stored in the device’s cache. It is the same with Google Calendar. If the Google Calendar cache files get damaged, your events will disappear. It is due to these damaged files that calendar events cannot be synchronized. Thus, any changes you add to your Google calendar do not seem to get updated.

Ransomware, malware & virus

The basic cause of such a problem is the prevalence of viruses and malware that affect your system; it can lead to disruption of your Google Calendar events. Make sure you keep your antivirus updated.
