My Calendar has been wiped! What happened?! And how do I get it back?

My Calendar has been wiped! What happened?! And how do I get it back?

Within the last couple of weeks I bought myself a Sony Xperia SP, previously I had a Galaxy S2, I thought the move to different Android devices would be easy but it took longer than I had anticipated. 

 

I managed to transfer everything across successfully in the end, including all of my calendar events, using the PC companion. I have been using the phone perfectly happily for the last couple weeks, but yesterday I accessed my Calendar app to find all of my old event appointments had vanished! 

I had apparently synced my calendar with Facebook, which I had not authorised, so I have since hidden that calendar, but I need my old appointments, I had everything stored on there. If they were stored on the default phone calendar, I can no longer find that setting. 

It means I now have little confidence in my phone calendar so I wonder whether I should use it at all in future...

 

If someone could help I would really appreciate it. 

 

I would probably need a step by step guide as to how to fix the problem as I am not very techincally minded. 

 

Thank you in advance.

Hmm I'm not sure if I've done it wrong, the default calendar is now back, but the appointments aren't. Although it says it is synced (not sure what to) and visible...

It's probably not the best way to do it, but I just used my computer calendar and managed to sync that to my gmail account, so in theory it won't happen again.

 

Still not pleased that it happened in the first place though.

 

Thanks for your help.
