  1. Before you do this – be aware that the reminders folder doesn’t contain “reminders”. There is no such beast. The reminders folder contains links to real appointments/tasks/messages that fit the reminder criteria. When you delete that appointment from the reminders folder, you’re deleting the real appointment. If you’re fine with that, then cool. If you’re not fine with that, you might be better off figuring out which props the reminder info is stored in and delete just those props instead.
