I accidentally imported a calendar into Outlook instead of creating a new one. Old appointments disappeared.

I wanted to add another calendar to my MS Outlook and instead of clicking on "create new calendar" I clicked on "import calendar". The imported calendar is now created, but all the appointments of my old calendar are gone. How can I get rid of the imported calendar and get my old appointments back?

    Hi @qpymasdf ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    Do you have back up? If you do, you can recover the calendar items from the back up.

    If you don't, you can find them from deleted items or recover items remove from deleted items.
    More information in this official article for your reference: Recover deleted items in Outlook for Windows
