Well, as it is not according to you I would contact a server admin to take a a peek.
Remember, if you use the 'Reply' button the user, in this case me, will/would know you replied to him/her ;)
Edit: Just remembered something, do you have your game in German? If so, maybe the server instead of saving it to cstrike_german saved it to cstrike. Also, you did a search for .dem files already, didn't you?
Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
Click on the Start button. This is the small round button with the Windows flag in the lower left corner.
Click on the Control Panel menu option.
When the control panel opens click on the Appearance and Personalization link.
Under the Folder Options category, click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.
Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files, folders, or drives.
Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide extensions for known file types.
Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).
Press the Apply button and then the OK button..
Now Windows 7 is configured to show all hidden files
99.9% sure that if viewdemo 'demoname' works, then it is in your cstrike, and you are either not looking hard enough, or you are in the wrong account's cstrike.
If you put a different demo in your cstrike folder, then do viewdemo 'that_demo' does that work? If not perhaps there is a config value for your default recording/viewing folder, and maybe the auto recording stuff has changed it.
