Rufus 2.13.1081

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 2.13.1081:

  • Preserve 'GPT for UEFI' option if the user changed it before selecting an ISO
  • Fix unwanted notification sound when closing with the X button (#893)
  • Fix inability to restore the minimized application after a popup is displayed (#896)
  • Fix an issue when trying to install Syslinux/NTFS twice in a row (#904)
  • Work around Microsoft's inconsistent casing of device IDs during device enumeration
  • Work around Microsoft's aggressive locking of partitions in Windows 10 Creators Update (#883)
  • Restrict write sharing permissions when accessing a device
  • Update libcdio and GRUB 2.0 to latest
