The linux command file will identify it as a savf file.

movsavf.savf: IBM OS/400 save file data

The jSAVF utility will tell you whats in the file, but the display is in
French. Pretty easy to figure out however.

Subject: Identify a savefile downloaded to a PC?


Does anyone know if there is a way to look at a file on a PC and
determine if it is a savefile that was (theoretically) downloaded from
the i?
