MySQL Back Up - Cant find Dumped File

I created an "Export to Disk"  Options "Export to Self Contained Folder" and specified the "File Path.

I then executed the export which completed successfully.

I created a batch file from the code when it executed successfully. I placed the batch file in a folder create a task in the "Task Scheduler".

The scheduler is indicating that "The Operation Completed Successfully", Yet I cannot find the file in the file path.

mysqldump.exe -pdd --no-create-info=FALSE --order-by-primary=FALSE --force=FALSE --no-data=FALSE --tz-utc=TRUE --flush-privileges=FALSE --compress=FALSE --replace=FALSE --host=localhost --skip-lock-tables=TRUE --extended-insert=TRUE --user=root --quote-names=TRUE --hex-blob=TRUE --complete-insert=FALSE --add-locks=TRUE --port=3306 --disable-keys=TRUE --delayed-insert=FALSE --delete-master-logs=FALSE --comments=TRUE --default-character-set=utf8 --max_allowed_packet=1G --insert-ignore=FALSE --flush-logs=TRUE --dump-date=TRUE --allow-keywords=FALSE --create-options=TRUE --events=FALSE --single-transaction=TRUE --databases --routines "dd" "mysql"

I think you missed to specify the output file/path:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysqldump.html
--result-file=file      result-file      Direct output to a given file

OR

mysqldump ....  > /path/yourfile.sql

if you run mysqldump, by default, it will just dump to screen, but not to file.

Where does the path file in the above code?

what does dumping to screen mean? is the database physically anywhere on the server?

>Where does the path file in the above code?
you will have to put the path YOU want. this was just an example to show the syntax

>what does dumping to screen mean?
it means the "script" is not saved to a file, but only "dumped" to the command line screen.

I mean where does it go in this code

mysqldump.exe -pdd --no-create-info=FALSE --order-by-primary=FALSE --force=FALSE --no-data=FALSE --tz-utc=TRUE --flush-privileges=FALSE --compress=FALSE --replace=FALSE --host=localhost --skip-lock-tables=TRUE --extended-insert=TRUE --user=root --quote-names=TRUE --hex-blob=TRUE --complete-insert=FALSE --add-locks=TRUE --port=3306 --disable-keys=TRUE --delayed-insert=FALSE --delete-master-logs=FALSE --comments=TRUE --default-character-set=utf8 --max_allowed_packet=1G --insert-ignore=FALSE --flush-logs=TRUE --dump-date=TRUE --allow-keywords=FALSE --create-options=TRUE --events=FALSE --single-transaction=TRUE --databases --routines "dd" "mysql"

it will only be displayed to the screen, unless you "redirect" to a file, like this:
mysqldump.exe .... all you stuff above ... "mysql" > your_dump_file.sql

or you use the option indicated above:
mysqldump.exe --result-file=your_dump_file.sql  .... all you stuff above ... "mysql"

so, unless you tell the tool to actually write to a file, and hence specify the file name (and hence the location which will be by default the current path), you can afterwards search long to find a file, as you won't find any,
