Currently I have a Ubuntu server located remotely and I would like to share a folder with my local Windows 7 machine. In other words I would like to map my remote Ubuntu drive as if it was a local drive. How would I go about doing this?

IMO the easiest would be to install onpessh-server on Ubuntu and use winscp.

winscp

http://winscp.net

Just be sure to secure the ssh server, I advise you use keys and disable passwords.

You will have to import the openssh keys using puttygen

It will take a few minutes to set up, but it will be secure and graphical.
