Re: MySQLDUMP issue with backslash or special characters

To store a literal backslash, escape it, eg "c:\\this\\that...".

But MySQL usually can avoid such havoc required by the idiotic Microsoft path backslash, by translating forward slashes into backslashes when it evaluates strings containing them in path contexts. So just try forward slashes.
