Which is highly not recommend! This can produce some really weird and hard to debug behaviors.
It is recommend to backup your existing XAMPP installation, uninstall it completely, install the new XAMPP and merge really needed configuration changes setting by setting (for example by merging the configuration files with winmerge or other tools).
xampp_cli.exe installservice filezilla

Databases should be backed up periodically with true dumps, as you can 'fix' a dump. If you are running MySQL, the MySQL Workbench is a nice, free tool from Oracle. It includes Server Admin, backups + design tools
