Format and create bootable USB flash drives.
Rufus review by Team on 18.01.2015
Rufus is a utility which helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, like USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc. This my be used to install alternative operating systems to run a live distribution of Linux. In addition, it supports the creation of a Windows or MS DOS (or other flavor of DOS) boot disk.

The application doesn't want installing and it is enough to run the executable downloaded from the portal. Rufus is enveloped in a user friendly interface that is much like the Windows formatting wizard found in Windows built-in attributes. It's possible for you to choose a device, partition scheme and target system kind, file system type (FAT32, NTFS, UDF, exFAT), cluster size, and new volume label.

Primary formatting choices allow you to check for bad blocks in the device, and select the algorithm type (from 1 to 4 passes). Plus, you may set the format mode that is fast, create a protracted label and icon files, in addition to create a bootable disk using an ISO image.
It is easy to create bootable USB sticks for any Windows (or other OS) using the original ISO image!

Advanced tweaks can make Rufus list repaired (non-flash) or unpartitioned USB flash disks, add fixes for old BIOS (e.g. additional partition), and you may use Rufus MBR with a chosen BIOS ID.

All activity is recorded by the software to a separate panel, and it may be saved to a LOG file. It carries out a format task quickly and error-free, using low system resources. We never have come across any issues during our tests, since the utility didn't cause Windows to hang or crash.

Rufus can be particularly helpful for cases where:

-you should create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, - Linux, UEFI, etc.)
-you should work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
-you must flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
-you would like to run a low-level utility

Despite its modest size, everything you need is provided by Rufus!
