Rufus 2.5.799


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 this version:

  • Add SHA-256 checksum verification
  • Add a cheat mode to disable exclusive USB drive locking (Alt-,)
  • Add digital signature check on update downloads
  • Add Azerbaijani translation, courtesy of Elvin Məlikov
  • Add Persian translation, courtesy of Seyed Zia Azimi (ziaa)
  • Fix an issue where the update settings dialog may not display properly
  • Report Windows build number in the log (Windows 8 or later)
  • Many localization improvements and fixes, especially for right-to-left languages
  • Additional translation updates
