1. emsandbox needs to be run as sudo
2. unless your machine is called 'baloon' [sic] and you have configured
a packages.conf file for that machine, emsandbox would have given an
3. Where did you find this command line?
4. What was the final output of emsandbox - it is usually quite verbose
and does declare where the file has been created, just at the end of
the output.
5. emsandbox uses the working directory configured for emdebian-tools -
see /etc/emsource.conf and/or /etc/emsandbox.conf
6. Make sure you are using the latest emdebian-tools/emdebian-rootfs
package - 1.4.12. Do 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get dist-upgrade'
to get the latest versions.

e.g. in my configuration, the root filesystem created by emsandbox (for
the --machine balloon (not baloon)) would be
in /opt/emdebian/emdebianstage1.tgz but the filename is fully
configurable in the packages.conf file for each machine.

You need to provide a lot more information to resolve your enquiry.
