I don't know what would cause that to happen and I can't duplicate the behavior when using my server and sharing ICS files between multiple computers.
Couldn't VueMinder simply retry in case of an error?

I already tried ical-mac.com and found incompatabilities with VueMinder - see here
icalx.com: The last entry on this site is from 2007. I wonder if it still works.

Of course, that would make such errors less occur. But it doesn't solve the error.
There is a reason for syncing every 1 minute: If two users are adding or editing calendar entries on the same calendar the same time there is a big chance that some changes are being deleted by the other users VueMinder.
If I set syncing every 15 minutes: User 1 changes an event. This will be uploaded immediately. 5 minutes later user 2 is synching with his old not updates status. This will overwrite the changes made by user 1 and so forth. Is that correct?
