Rufus 2.9.934

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 this version:

  • Add ARM support for UEFI:NTFS
  • Fix UEFI:NTFS support for HP and Gigabyte firmwares (with thanks to Rod Smith and linnaea)
  • Fix unwanted listing of some internal removable drives
  • Fix the resurgence of a possible Syslinux installation crash
  • Fix missing default cluster size default on exFAT for >32GB drives
  • Fix the non-removal of the commandline hogger in some corner cases
  • Use "modern" file selection dialog on Vista or later (if you can spot the difference, good for you...)
