I think I know what's going on here, I recently had a similar problem.

Go into Windows 10.
Open the control panel (the old fashioned one! You can search for control panel and open it from there)
Go into power options and click 'choose what power buttons do'
Click 'Change settings that are currently unavailable'
Scroll down to Shutdown settings and uncheck 'Turn on fast startup'
Click 'save changes'

Reboot and try puppy

When Windows 10 has fast startup enabled, it locks the drive because it's hibernated meaning nothing else can write to it so your savefile will not work. I wiped a perfectly good savefile trying to figure this out!

Hope this helps

** Extra **
Also check you have the right partition as others have stated as Windows creates lots on install. My main Windows partition where my savefile lives is the fourth partition (hd0,4)
