Hacks for Google Calendar Sync (Version: clearing the marked deleted items to be sync-ed

Hanging in there.

I found myself in serious need to have Google Calender Sync (GCS) to forget about sync-ing deleted Outlook Calendar items. If GCS does not forget, it would then delete the same items on Google Calendar, too! And that's very bad for me!

Luckily, after some hack, I found one way: just delete saved state files of GCS. It works like this:
  1. Exit GCS.
  2. Go to the folder named:"%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Google Calendar Sync\data_files"
  3. Removing all files, except "user_properties.txt" and "user_info_2.txt".
  4. Restart GCS. It is done!
Enjoy it!

The longest distance

Sometimes I feel myself quite slow adapting to new technologies. I might have already accepted the concept, and agreed to all its possibilities. But in the end, no ACTIONS are taken. Too bad!

Act on them!

I write this post to remind myself: keep the distance between my hands and the heart very short! Never let it become the longest one!
