that depends on 'where' Backtrack and Windows are.

For instance, if Backtrack is in a VirtualBox VM you can setup a 'folder share' and simply copy files on backtrack into the share which will then appear on your Windows filesystem

basically it works in the same way as a 'network share'

for network, I think you can use rsync,
as well as mounting a windows share in backtrack
