You are using "-append". That means that 'hafizah.dat' should already exist.
Does it exist?
According to matlab it does not.
You say you want to save in a different folder. However, you're saving in the current directory. Where is the path to the "different folder"?
The name of the saved file should include the whole path, e.g.
saveFile='../otherfolder/hafizah.dat';
(linux or mac path).
