Yes, of course. But thats not Xampp, thats basic Windows knowledge.

You cannot put the ZIP Folder into the "zipped folder", because then you try to backup the ZIP file recursively into the ZIP file. That leads to read error.
And for "outside" htdocs it depends, WHERE you put the ZIP file. For some locations, you need administration rights. But not for all, for example, you have all rights for your User folder.
Either start an Explorer with admin rights or put the ZIP file somewhere in your User folder.

And if unsure, ask in a Microsoft WIndows forum, as this has nothing to do with Xampp (neither Wordpress).

And what is meant by that:

??

Anyway, as already said, thats a plain WIndows Problem, neither Xampp, nor WordPress. We cannot support WIndows here.

sorry if this not related with xampp ...but for wordpress and you trying to move the offline website to live production server, i recommend using duplicator plugins instead manual back up
