i'm well out of the loop with windows' "recent" (vista/7) file securities, so i can't help you there, but might you be better off setting scummvm up on a usb stick instead of a dvd, so you can run scummvm and save games all in place on that?

to be fair, the description of this forum is " General chat related to ScummVM, adventure gaming, and so on." which could easily encompass grim fandango. but it's true that grim-specific issues might be better handled in a grim-specific environment - then again, this board probably gets more traffic...
