Moving Exchange Calendar Events

Hello Experts!

I've run into an issue when copying events from one calendar to another within Exchange. I've migrated a client over from an Exchange 2007 to an Exchange 2010 SP2 server. Everything went smoothly, except for calendar events. After copying the user / room calendars over, I've noticed that the events created pre-migration retain some permission from the previous accounts. Users cannot edit these events or send out invitations to the events. They receive a message saying they lack the proper permissions.

Any advice as to how I can copy these events without copying the permissions?

Thank you!

    How did you do this ?
    I would recommend Export-Import option in Outlook as it keeps the permissions intact.

    It may be too late for this... It was a hasty last minute thing I threw together. Let's use a user as an example. On the old server, there was user "Jane." While I had exported her email successfully, I forgot about her calendar. In my haste, I simply mounted her old calendar and copied the events to the new calendar with a CTRL + C and CTRL + V. The old accounts no longer exist... :(

    So we dont have the Old mailbox or calendar data now ?
    If still you can empty her current calendar (After taking a backup) and Export and Import .

    Are there many appointments thats broken?

    Unfortunatley, as the appointments have been copied, the permission thats being retined here soudns to be original organizer of the event.

    If there arent very many, the esiest way forward may be to recreate them.
