Spanning Undelete Restores Deleted Google Apps Calendar Events

Google Apps: There's an undo function in almost every Google productivity tool, and even an "undo" for hastily sent emails. But Google Calendar? Google says there's no way to get back events you accidentally trashed. Free web tool Spanning Undelete disagrees.

Once you add this app to your Google Apps account and authenticate it with Calendar, it keeps an eye on Calendar's queue of recently deleted items and backs them up. You can even install it after an "Oh, crud" moment and find the items you just wiped out.

It won't work for those with standard Google/Gmail accounts, but if you're using Google Apps to maintain your own web domain, it can serve as your personal calendar keeper. It's a free tool from the makers of a wider array of Apps backup offerings.

    This is a useful innovation from Spanning Backup which we've used for a number of Google Apps customers. The ability to recover items that were deleted before Spanning Undelete is deployed has saved the day a few times. For comprehensive Google Apps backups, at Cloud Logic Australia (cloudlogic.com) we tend to deploy Backupify which backs up Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Sites and Docs. Spanning Backup currently does not back up Sites and crucially gives the end user the ability to turn the back up off rendering it non-viable for most businesses.
