If the windows system is an ftp server this is possible. The ftp server would need to be configured to use the D drive. There doesn't seem to be a way for the user to switch drives. There is plenty of examples of automated ftp scripts on this site. Use the search function. Or just go to the FAQ section and read the automated ftp faq.

But you can also go in the other direction. From the windows system, open up a dos window and run ftp. Then you can automate the process from windows.

In the future, please be a little more informative. "Unix to windows" doesn't tell us much. "HP-UX to Windows XP" is better. "HP-UX 11i to Windows XP Home edition" is better still.
