I deleted all Google events in the browser interface. How to upload again with iCal4OL.

This is a generic post (copied from http://ical.gutentag.ch/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=2101)

Sadly, Google changed the behavior for clearing (deleting) the Primary Google Calendar (in 2013).

=> All events will get just marked as "canceled" and not removed anymore. This makes it very complex to sync with iCal4OL again.

The easiest work-around is to switch to a new Secondary Google Calendar for at least 14 days (Deleted events are getting removed after this time..).
Second easiest is to undelete multiple events in the Primary Google Calendar. On tab "1. How" under the bottom [Choose Google Calendar] you'll find [Undelete] (select first the correct Google Calendar, run the function and wait... a window will pop up at the end, showing all deleted events.. mark those you want to undeleted.. aso).


1)
- If you "Deleted" the content of the Primary Google Calendar in the Browser Interface, and want to re-use it, do following steps in iCal4OL:
- Important: If you already synced 2-Way again with iCal4OL and most events got deleted in Outlook:
   - Move back the deleted events from the Outlook "Deleted Items" Folder,
     and in iCal4OL on tab "1. How" run  [Folder Sync Reset] for the Outlook Calendar.
     (You must do this in every *.ini configuration file)!

a) You need at least iCal4OL Version 2.13.1. But better is to use the newest Version 2.14.8 and install over.
b) Select [X] 1-way synchronization with Google Calendar - upload to Google Calendar on tab "What".
c) Empty on tab "1. How" the field Date and time last run (updated automatically)
d) Do not use a rule in "[X] Select time period with a TO:-date, otherwise you will get the same issue in the future.
    Use this option with rule from -31 days (incremental)
e) Activate on tab "1. How" at the bottom [X] Enhanced Options - Activate tabs "x.1 More"
f) Click on button [Default] to reset everything on tab "1.x More - Export" and
g) mark [X] Re-upload previous deleted events
h) Change other filters back as needed.
    Do NOT activate the option about mailing invitations
    Do NOT    mark on tab "Google" Upload: [ ] Deactivate similarity test (same subject+starttime),
    otherwise iCal4OL can't find "cancelled" copies.

Run it!


2)
Due to the fact, that there are still deleted copies of recurring events in the Google Calendar,
you must re-configure the 2-Way Google Sync, if you want to use it again:

i) Select [X] 2-way synchronization with Google Calendar on tab "What".
j) Empty on tab "1. How" the field Date and time last run (updated automatically)
k) Activate on tab "1. How" at the bottom [X] Enhanced Options - Activate tabs "x.1 More"
l) Click on button [Default] to reset everything on tab "1.x More - Import" and
m) mark [X] Deactivate similarity test (Same Starttime and Subject).
     This will prevent iCal4OL to delete events in Outlook, which have still a "deleted copy" on GCAL.
n) Change other filters back as needed on tab "1.1 More-Import" and "1.2 More-Export"
