I have connected to my remote server using Putty and I want to retrieve a file back to my local machine. How do I do it? Can I do it?

PSCP is a part of the putty package.

The easiest way is to get pscp from the same place you got putty from which copies files over the same protocols as putty.

Assuming an SSH connection, you can use either PSCP as suggest by Pekka, or WinSCP is a fairly decent SCP/SFTP client.
