How to back up Calendars in macOS High Sierra

Back up, back up, back up. No matter what Apple hardware you’re using, you need multiple copies to make sure no valuable data is lost. Among items to back up: your calendars on your Mac. Here’s how:

  • Launch the Calendar. If you don’t see the Calendar sidebar, which shows all your individual calendars (work, family, etc.), click the Calendars button in the toolbar.
  • From the sidebar, select the calendar you want to back up.
  • From the menus list, select File>Export,>Export (yep, two exports).
  • Via the Save dialog, cruise to a location on your Mac to store the backup, and click Export. The selected calendar will be saved in iCal (.ics) format. 

Repeat for any other calendars you want to back up.
