Okay, I have looked into this some more, and found that when you launch a game from GameTap, two virtual drives are created: one at X, where the game data(including saved games)is stored, and one at Y, for the CD in games that use one.
These drives do not appear in the Explorer, and if I try to access them in another application(such as DRAGON UnPacker or Hex Workshop)I get "Access is Denied".

(screenshot from Even More Contraptions)
Copy protection may be required to keep GameTap from becoming a piracy haven, but it is NOT okay when it prevents you from accessing your saved games(either to back them up, or to copy over one you got from somewhere else).
