Putty cant be used for trasfering files, however u can download WinSCP and use it to do that (connect to the SSH port of linux machine)

While I do agree that WinSCP is a nice GUI tool for secure copy of files, Putty works very well for the job also using the command line tool called pscp.
Check out this on putty. In particular, the section on pscp which is used to tranfer files to and from a remote host.
