Good answer, but I would like to add an alternative option. If you seek to
migrate files as an 'odd one' rather than as part of a routine, you can just
SCP files from one machine to another. Make sure the two machines are
connected with a crossover wire and use SCP[1] on the Linux box and pscp.exe
[2] (or the likes of it) under Windows.

[1] pscp -r c:\windows_path you@linuxbox:destination_directory


pscp -r you@linuxbox:directory/files c:\windows_path

[2] Get from: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Hope it helps,


PS - Experience has taught me that pscp is far slower than scp, in practice.
