Rufus 2.11.995

Rufus

Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc. Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need! Oh, and Rufus is fast. For instance it's about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO (with honorable mention to WiNToBootic for managing to keep up). It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USBs from ISOs. A non-exhaustive list of Rufus supported ISOs is available here.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

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

What's new in Rufus 2.11.995:

  • Do not download BIOS related files unless BIOS boot is selected
  • Improve support for Arch Linux derivatives
  • Add a cheat mode to disable drive indexing on format (Alt-Q)
  • Fix handling of 'Super Floppy Disk' formatted drives
  • Fix handling of misleading short write reports, for drives larger than 1 TB
  • Fix an issue that enabled FAT32 file system selection on some Windows images
  • Fix broken UI font for XP users
  • Fix sanitizing of exFAT labels
