Hi, my play-by-email strategy game opponent is having trouble finding his pbem files; he finishes the turn and saves the file, but when he tries to find it to send to people, it's vanished and doesn't appear in his games pbem folder.
He's been Mac for years and only recently got a PC (Win XP) so maybe he's inexperienced, any advice you can give me to pass on to him?

PS-here's the strategy club thread where he's been talking about it, he's 'Wardoggie'-

Well, if it is a file in c:/ drive just tell him to save it to a flash drive or something. And if it doesn't show up when u check it right after. There should be a way to have it save to a flashdrive instead of your main drive. Idk how though. Haven't done any play-by-email games. Just a quess.

Go into search and type into the search box *.pbem then it will find all files on the hard drive with that extension or tell him to choose his folder when hes saving the game also so he knows where its going, just say the desktop for a simple example.
