Solution
This error is actually a security access issue. The account trying to access the C:\Temp path is actually an IIS application pool account. Not sure exactly which one but my logical guess would be the SharePoint one. Open IIS and check what application pool account SharePoint is running under. Then navigate to Right click the 'C:\Temp ' folder, select properties and click on the security tab. Click edit and add the IIS application pool account. I gave the account full access but you can test if still works with more restricted permissions. Once you apply these changes you should be able to create the site template without causing an error.
