need help using scp on putty

I am trying to download a file from my server onto my Win XP Pro machine using the scp command in putty, but am having problems.

I tried this:
scp filename-to-download c:\temp

But it says:
c: Name or service not known

Any help would be appreciated.

You'll have to tell it where to download the file from (as good as PuTTY already is, it's not psychic yet):
Code:
pscp user@server:/path/to/file c:\temp

I tried that and still get the same error... it does not seem to recognize that C: is a drive on my machine.

I don't know what sshd is, but this could be why it is not working!!! I usually use FileZilla, but I noticed that using Putty (ssh) to upload large files instead of FileZilla was noticeably faster, and I wanted to see if it was faster when downloading as well! But if you can't do it, then it is definitely not faster!

Thanks
