Rufus is an extremely easy to use piece of software that allows you to create bootable USB drives that you could use in order to install any kind of operating systems at any desired time. One of the great things about this handy application is the fact that, compared to many of its competitors which are currently available on the Internet, it is extremely fast.
In order to create your bootable USB flash drive with the help of the reliable Rufus, you will simply have to provide the location of the disk image (ISO) which will be used (or you can also create a MS-DOS bootable disk) and press "Start". You will have your bootable disk in just a few minutes. In addition, this small piece of software also provides you with several other options that can prove to be quite useful, like performing a quick format before creating your disk (which is highly recommended), checking the device for bad blocks so that you can ensure that the installation will flawlessly complete or creating an extended label and icon files (basically, it will create an "autorun.inf" file on the device).
Other than that, not much more can be said about the handy Rufus, besides the fact that it comes with a simple and minimalistic interface, keeping the task of creating bootable USB drives simple and straight to the point. Furthermore, due to the fact that this application doesn't require an installation, it can run on any computer (Windows XP or later) in order to create bootable USB flash drives whenever you need to.
All in all, if you are looking for an easy to use and reliable piece of software that allows you to quickly create bootable USB flash drives, then the ligthweight Rufus is an excellent choice.
