My load games have only 3 saves: can't load correct save

I googled all over and can’t seem to find much.
I just installed this from steam 2 days ago, have used 4 times. Made one game in just “general construction” and have saved 6 different slots just goofing around with posing.

Well these don’t show in my load list even though they are in my folder. If I move everything out but the 2 files that are hl2.tga and hl2.sav with the same modified time I want, GMOD doesn’t see them and says “There are no saves to load.”

Any suggestions appreciated.
