Windows 10: Events on Outlook Calendar Deleted, Retained on GMail Calendar???

    Events on Outlook Calendar Deleted, Retained on GMail Calendar???

    The Basics

    Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked – the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.

    My Problem

    Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected – or maybe not quite as expected. I’ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven’t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.

    Very strange. Anybody know what’s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

    Update - The problem does move ahead each day. The auto - deletes now begin on 9/9.

    Nobody with any ideas???

    I did some more searching for an answer and found out that this is not a new problem. See the following links:

    Everyone that uses the windows calendar along with the google calendar and schedules events longer than six months should take note!!! I can't find anything that would indicate to me that Microsoft is working on a solution to the problem (since the 6 month+ items show up on the Google calendar but not on the Windows calendar, my assumption is the problem is with the Windows calendar).
