    First off this is a Linux forum and I am assuming that you are using mysql on a Linux server, why then would you be trying to output the file into a windows C drive?

    You can use mysqldump to output your entire database as a backup or transfer method and mysqlimport to inport the data into another database. All of the information is in the mysql online manual, I highly recommend reading through it there are many useful utilities.
