      Description

      When I try to mongodump all databases, I get the following error:
      error: boost::filesystem::create_directory: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect: "c:\Backup*"

      Unfortunately, this error also terminates the dump process. When I list the databases in my server, there is indeed a database named "*" but I am not able to interact with it in any meaningful way.

      What do you recommend I try next?
