well, something I do is this: from the TServer session, I open \\<my computer name>\c$ and connect to my own PC. You could create a share on your PC to map to (c$ requires administrator access)

I've also read about newer versions allowing drag n drop or cut n paste between your desktop session and Terminal Server sessions (mine doesn't do it)

I just had the same problem with a client needing to be able to transfer files via Terminal Services.  Since their server is running Server 2000 it is not native to the operating system (in Server 2003 it  IS).  

Just found a great little third party utility that provides an easy to use pop-up in Terminal Services that allows easy transfer of files between the server and client or vice versa.  Check out www.ibexsoftware.com.  There is a free 30 day trial and the purchase price(s) are very reasonable.
