Here's a small windows command line script to backup and rar-compress said mysql library.
It assumes a few folders, like "C:\program files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin" for the mysql bin folder, "W:/MySql" for a destination folder and winrar to be installed on "C:\program files\WinRAR".

Hope it put minds at ease as it did to mine.

@echo off
FOR /F "skip=1 tokens=1-6" %%A IN ('WMIC ^Path Win32_LocalTime Get Day^,Hour^,Minute^,Month^,Second^,Year /Format:table') DO (
    IF %%A GTR 0 (
	SET Day=%%A
	SET Hour=%%B
	SET Min=%%C
	SET Month=%%D
	SET Sec=%%E
	SET Year=%%F

if %Month% LSS 10 set Month=0%Month%
if %Day% LSS 10 set Day=0%Day%
if %Min% LSS 10 set Minute=0%Minute%
if %Hour% LSS 10 set Hour=0%Hour%

rem set now=%year%-%month%-%day%_%hour%-%min%-%sec%
set now=%year%-%month%-%day%
set now=%now%

"C:\program files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysqldump" --opt -uuser -ppassword comicdb --result-file=W:/MySql/comicdb-%now%.sql
"C:\program files\WinRAR\rar" m -m5 -dh -y -ibck W:\MySql\comicdb-%now%.sql.rar W:\MySql\comicdb-%now%.sql
