I have recently updated my Mac OS X to 10.8 version. The iCal application is changed as "Calendar" app in OS X 10.8. The problem here is, I lost all data which I stored in iCal. Any suggestions to retrieve those data's?

Did you have your calendar in iCloud or Gmail? Or just stored localy? – patrix Sep 3 '12 at 8:31
I just stored locally :( – Confused Sep 3 '12 at 8:48
Do you have a backup...Time Machine, for example? – Phillip Mills Sep 3 '12 at 12:08
No, I did not use Time Machine and all. I stored events only in iCal. Also, I lost all my stickies :( – Confused Sep 4 '12 at 10:10
