I transferred my evolution files from an old computer to a new computer by using Evolution File>Backup on the old computer, copying the backup file to the new computer and using Evolution File>Restore.
My mail transferred properly and works fine. But I seemed at first to have lost all my old appointments in my calendar. In addition, I noticed new entries appeared doubled or worse in the slot. I then noticed that at the left the

appeared twice and was checked twice.
Unchecking the second occurrence eliminated the doubling of the entries. But I don't see any way to eliminate the duplicate entry.
In addition, in the process of trying to figure it out I tried looking at the files in .evolution/calendar/local/system.
In particular. There were three calendar.ics files there. I tried moving one of them into a tmp directory, but that didn't make any difference. I don't know what I did, but I seem to have removed the system directory. A find shows that, and its contents have been moved to
But at this point my old appointments have reappeared in my calendar.
Since it all seems to be working now, perhaps I should leave well enough alone, but I think there must be something seriously wrong.
Can anyone tell me what probably happened and let me know how to straighten it all out?
I found out from the evolution listserve that because of a bug in evolution, I can't remove the copy. I can live with that for the present.
But I still don't know why the calendar.ics files were move to a subdirectory of ~/.local. Or why my old appointments, having vanished previously, suddenly reappeared.
