OK this geezer is not going to come back with a response. If the file type is not one of the ones supported by Playbook's internal file "manager" it will be invisible.  For example the router configuration backup file "nvram.bak" will not be visible because .bak is not a stanfard PB extension, and cannot therefore be used to restore the router config using Playbook's browser. It cannot be attached to an email either. It is a major flaw in Playbooks file management and is done in the name of security.

 

Install the free app AIR Browser to look for it in the Playbook. You may not be able to do much with it except rename it.
