Hi i have a user whose Apple MAC seemed to sync from Entourage and wipe the majority of the email from the users office Outlook account. I haver restored all this fine, however when trying to restore the calendar it failed a few times and i did not realise that each time it failed it was restoring duplicate calendar entries.

So i ended up with 6 entries for each entry. I managed to clear this out on the users calendar, but in shared calendar from any other user all entries still remain. Should this not sync from the main users calendar?

i need to remove the duplicates from everyone else who has access to his calendar.

thanks

Use below comment this is a free tool which is suggested by Symantec also  

http://www.vaita.com/ODIR.asp 

We have to download ODIR software the utility from the following url: http://www.vaita.com/ODIR.asp 
This will not work  on Global Desktop we have to use physical or Virtual machine with user profile.  Open Outlook, click on ODIR menu -> Remove duplicate items

You will have to repeat the process against every folder, unfortunately the utility does not scan the sub folders

The Duplicate remover wizard will show up, please select the folder and click on the Remove duplicate items button

You will have to repeat the process against every folder, unfortunately the utility does not scan the sub folders

Below is the example of the mailbox folder which had duplicates, you can see after the scan has been completed there were 54 duplicates which have been moved to “ODIR_Duplicated_email”
