If you're a command line sort of person then scp complements ssh; and if
you're using Putty at the Windows end you'll find an scp compatible utility
in the package.
If you like to point and click then you can set up ftp access through
'network places' on Windows that looks much like normal file access in
Windows explorer. Here some 9 or 10 hours ahead of UTC Windows gets a bit
confused by the UTC dates presented by unix and sees it as some time in the
future, knows that can't be right so dates the file as a year old. If you are
the other side of UTC I don't imagine this is a problem.
