Default How to delete all calendars

Thanks to the unholy mess that is desktop integration with the SGS2 (and possibly with all Android phones for all I know), my calendar is a complete dog's breakfast with multiple entries, multiple spurious calendars etc.

The calendar on my Mac is fine so I would like to delete all my calendars and everything in them so I can re-sync.

Going to Settings->Applications->Manage applications->Calendar and tapping on Clear data appears to have done nothing. I read elsewhere that I should manually delete com.android.providers.calendar but I cannot find it and the only file manager I have that does real search (File Expert) keeps FCing on me.

Can anyone help please?

[Edit]
On further investigation, it appears that com.android.providers.calendar is the application itself, so deleting this probably isn't a good idea. Some (Android, not specifically SGS2) users appear to have a Calendar Storage application, the data for which can be cleared, but I am not one of those as far as I can tell.

I'm replying to my own post here, but just in case anyone else needs to do this, here is how you do this.

Settings->Manage applications
Select All tab [this is what I failed to do and why I couldn't find Calendar Storage]
Select Calendar Storage
Select Clear data.
