I would be satisifed with just deleting the contents as I have the data (non-duped) backed up.

You could simply delete the Calendar folder and create a new one, into which you would then import your backup.

Delete a folder (Calendar)
On the Go menu, click Folder List (Folder List: Displays the folders available in your mailbox. To view subfolders, click the plus sign (+) next to the folder. If the Folder List is not visible, on the Go menu, click Folder List.). In the Folder List, in the Navigation Pane (Navigation Pane: The column on the left side of the Outlook window that includes panes such as Shortcuts or Mail and the shortcuts or folders within each pane. Click a folder to show the items in the folder.), right-click the folder you want to delete. On the shortcut menu, click Delete folder name.

Create a folder
On the File menu, point to New, and then click Folder. In the Name box, enter a name for the folder. In the Folder contains box, click the type of folder you want to create. In the Select where to place the folder list, click the location for the folder.

Archerslo,

I tried that method of deletion but the "delete" option is greyed out for the Calendar folder.
