Your GOSSIP data directory stores your blockchain, configuration, wallet, and masternode data.  By default, they are located in the following locations for each OS type:


First possible location:
Go to Start > Run > %APPDATA%\PIVX
(or just enter the above path in explorer)

or C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Gossipcoin

(Hidden folder "AppData" - How to view hidden folders on Windows)

Second possible location:

You have a customized install path. I don't know where it can be on your computer.


Open a finder window, then select the "Go" dropdown menu. In this menu please press the "Go to Folder..." option. In the window that opens type: ~/Library/Application Support/PIVX and press enter. If the folder cannot be found please repeat the steps and enter: ~/.gossip

~/Library/Application\ Support/GOSSIP
(/Users/YourUserName/Library/Application\ Support/GOSSIP)
