In order to retrieve your coins, you will need a copy of the wallet.dat file from the previous system OS installation. This file is stored in c:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\GoldCoin (GLD)

Close the Goldcoin client and rename the existing file wallet_bak.dat, then copy the wallet.dat file from the previous installation and restart your client.
