BOOT path-list: flash:c3750-advipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE4/c3750-advipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE4.bin

You can copy your switch's current TAR IOS file to TFTP. 

You can use tftpd32 v3.3 and set some parameters so file can be copied .

tftpd32 - > Settings -> TFTP Configurations
timeout (seconds) - 1200
Max Transmite - 100000   


Type command on Switch (privileged EXEC mode)
Switch(2960-X)#
Switch(2960-X)#archive upload-sw tftp://tftp -server-ipaddress/ios file name

Switch(2960-X)#archive upload-sw tftp://172.20.100.100/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5

 

if TFTP server is directly connected to switch than it will be good so packets will not be drop.

You want to copy the BIN file to the TFTP server?  I don't know why you want to do that but the command is:  copy flash1:c3750-advipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE4/c3750-advipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE4.bin tftp://
