zpivs missing


New Pivian
Dear Pivx,

In 2018 may I made last transfer to Pivx wallet. All the coins minted to zpivs. This year in march I wanted to stake again and I upgraded wallets and I was staking for about a month when synchronization got stuck and I didn't want to reload all blockchain so I left it. Yesterday I reopend and upgraded wallet to v4.3.0 and I don't see my zipivs I don't see privacy tab I don't have any zpivs. There are no outgoing transactions in my wallet and I am missing all my zpivs. I reload all blockchain and I tried backing up wallet but nothing is working. What should I do? Where are my coins and where is privacy tab to remint zpivs?

kind regards,

@pawelpawel First thing is to get wallet fully synced. Unlock wallet then go to Settings > Debug > Console
Enter the following command in console
searchdzpiv 0 10000 2
Change the number 2 to the amount of cpu cores you have. Let the command run, it might take a while and it looks like it's not doing anything, don't interupt it. When it's done it will show a message in the debug console.

Ok thank you. I did it and got message done. What should I do now nothing changed in the wallet. What is more I don't see in this new version privacy tab to convert it back to pivx.
@pawelpawel Privacy tab is removed in current wallet, you can only access via command line. Try entering the command
Is there anything there?

Nice, here's the last step, now go back to console and type
spendzerocoin amount ( "address" )
#example below
spendzerocoin 500 "DMJRSsuU9zfyrvxVaAEFQqK4MxZg6vgeS6"
replace the address with one of your own receive address and for the amount, use the zerocoin balance from the getzerocoinbalance command
I am not able to recover my locked zPIV. I starten with PIVX for staking back in 2017-2018 and had to lock around 10% of my total PIVX stack into zPIV.
I did that and also my a copy of my wallet.

I received the message that we need to claim our locked zPIV so I recently synced my wallet. I followed the steps mentioned above.
Unfortunately my wallet did not showed my locked zPIV, but It did showed my PIVX.

I also imported my original .dat file. (back up). What can I do to retrieve my zPIV?
Did you upgrade the wallet. Wallet version should be current. If using old wallet version, you will most likely be forked.
Ok, I just used the "searchdzpiv 0 10000 2" command. After that I received some different transfers: incoming transfers and send transfers. They are all showing me numbers 0, -1, -10 and -50. Afterwards I used the command "getzerocoinbalance" and it still shows a balance of total": 0.00000000,.

It just seems to me I was bleeding zPIV all this time. Do you know what happened or am I doing something wrong?
You might need to wait for @Jeffrey to reply, he's knows better what to do or join Discord and go to support channel which sometimes is more active.
