first you need to download some Windows free software

WinSCP

http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

Install WinSCP, and then use your root username and password to connect to your Linux server.

You can use any sftp software that you feel comfortable with.  I would use either WinSCP or Filezilla.

Then you are really just using the ssh to copy across.  On many secured servers, root is not allowed to log in through ssh, but use any user/password that is allowed to ssh and has access the files you want.

Download and install WinSCP from the link provided above, and proceed as shown in the attachment.

Once logged in just drag and drop the file from Linux folder to required folder in windows.

Permission should be there for the user id tat you will use to login to the linux system.
