No idea.
You could try something like

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\RHEM 4\

if it's not in your Documents folder.

The AppData folder won't be visible unless you set your computer to show hidden files and folders.

Did you try making a save and then doing a "search by date" for that save?

Were you able to unhide the AppData folder?

If I can get hold of a Win7 computer to install it on I'll see if I can find where it puts its saves.

EDIT --

Going by what the saves from the save game server look like, your saves probably have names like 1a.txt, 1b.txt, 2a.txt, 2b.txt, etc. which correspond to the save slots. If you installed the game into your Documents folder, they will be found in a subfolder of the RHEM4 folder.

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT\

If you installed in C:\Program Files(x86) the game may put saves elsewhere if it's having trouble making changes inside C:\Program Files(x86).

Check my updated post (right above your last post) and see if it's any help.

By the way, if you installed in C:\Program Files(x86) instead of the Documents folder, try looking in

C:\Program Files(x86)\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT\

instead of

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT\

and check the date and time of the 1a.txt, 1b.txt, 2a.txt, 2b.txt, etc. files to make sure they are the saves you made and not just empty slots that installed with the game.

Try the RHEM4 saves at ***Savegameserver***. See if those will load for you.

It isn't necessarily your computer. MaG said that other people have had trouble with her RHEM4 saves, which is why I suggested you try saves from somewhere else to see if you can get those to work. Of course the trouble there is finding the right one out of that collection of saves, but at least you can find out if they'll load.

Start by putting a couple of the saves in the RHEM4/DATA/DEPO folder and see if they load. You might want to copy the current contents of the /DATA/DPOT folder to another folder to back them up first.
