Outlook Calendar Issue

My Outlook calendar has a problem with 2:30 appointments.  They will disappear for no reason.  I believe it is a corrupt file.  Is there a way to export the calendar settings (appointment history) then wipe it out and import the appointments back?  Would that work on a possible corrupt file?  Any other suggestions would help.

BTW - this is an Exchange account and I do not have administration privileges.

What version of Outlook? What OS? You could close Outlook, delete the .OST file which deletes the local cache, open Outlook to recreate the .OST then test.

Note: you'll have to show hidden files to see the .OST and be careful not to delete any .PST's if there are any.

The version is 2010 and the OS is XP.  By deleting the .OST file will it maintain my calendar history?

By deleting the OST file, there will be no calender history left. This might be happening due to the corruption in your OST file. You can repair the corrupt OST file  using inbuilt utility Scanpst.exe. Once you'd be able to repair your OST file , then convert your OST file into PST file

So, in order restore your lost appointments history, you need to convert your OS file into a new PST file and then import that newly created PST into Outlook. To carry out the same, you can either export data of OST file into a new PST file or you can make use of third party converter like Stellar OST To PST Converter, which can easily convert your OST file into a new importable PST file.
