I've redefined my problem -
I'm working at a windows computer (which doesn't have SCP therefore ) 
and I wish to grab files from a linux computer.
So I use putty and I am now logged in as a user on the linux box and 
thus I am effectively trying to send local files TO a remote windows 
box? (the fact that
I'm using it is irrelevant at this point).
So would the sysntax want to be something like:

scp /home/user/source/*  windowshostname:c:\destination\

the destination is the bit I can't grasp, in linux it would be 
root at hostname:/path/ - how do you translate that into a windows host and 
will windows accept an scp connection like this?
