The latest final version of Rufus launched a few hours ago. The new update, version 3.22, which had came out last week as beta, adds the option to disable BitLocker encryption from within the Windows User Experience window. Previously, Rufus had added bypass for Windows 11 RAM, Secure Boot, TPM 2.0, and Microsoft Account (MSA) requirements too.
Additionally, this is also the final Rufus version which will support Windows 7 ISO files. The release also fixes an SSD issue, adds SHA-1 and SHA-256 acceleration, and more. Find the full changelog below:
