    You can recover your wallet by following the steps here with some additional steps.

    1. Follow the steps here.(You may want to copy the wallet.db to make a backup before deleting it incase something goes wrong)
    2. After relaunching Sia-UI, go to thew wallet page and choose the recover from seed option.

    Your seed is also your password after you recover your wallet.

    And if I am using the iOS wallet?! Is it the same?!

    Asking because I can not find the what you are saying!!

    Navigate to %APPDATA%\Sia-UI\sia\wallet
    Delete wallet.db

    • I only have the application file and that's it!! Especially can't find the wallet.db

    @Bryan ......can you help also?!

    There are no official iOS wallet for Sia. Did you mean Mac OS? If you mean Mac OS, the path to wallet.db is $HOME/Library/Application Support/Sia-UI/sia/wallet.

    Sorry, yes, I'm using Mac OS (desktop wallet). And sorry but I can not find the file you are saying!!
    The zip file downloaded from sia.tech contains the application file, 2 text files and one html licence file!! No other folder or new files were added, so I really dunno what you mean, sorry!!



  • @Dizz
    I'm not familiar with Mac but I am pretty sure you are looking at the wrong place, wallet.db is not stored in the zip file you extracted. The zip file only contains the program and not the data. All the sia data is stored separately in the Application Support folder in your computer.
