Question: How to restore variables previously saved in a .m Maple internal format file?

I can save a variable M (actually a matrix) using

save M, "Test" or save M, ""

where .xyz can be any file extension except .m  This saves the variable in "Maple language format" and it can be restored using

read "Test" or read "".

But if I save with a .m extension

save M,"Test.m" then

read "Test.m" does not seem to restore the variable. What am I missing?

Secondly, is there a recommended file extension for a Maple language format file created with the save command?
