How do you copy file from Remote to your local computer in Windows using Putty.

scp -r username@remote:/path/to/folder /dest/local/path

I tried this but what would I write in place of /dest/local/path - is it /D:/download/?

I am confuse about it? Could some one help me it.

The syntax for Windows paths is the generally the same regardless of the application being used, provided it is run from cmd or the gui.

So your command would be

scp -r username@remote:/path/to/folder d:\download\
