Rufus 3.1.1320


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

Rufus 3.1.1320 changelog:

  • Fix extraction of ISO content for GRUB based ISOs (Manjaro, Kaspersky, etc.)

  • Fix text being truncated on some dialogs (mostly Russian and Thai)

  • Add detection & warning about the 'Controlled Folder Access' Windows 10 feature

  • Improve retry attempts for transient errors

  • Increase size of the ESP to 300MB, for Windows To Go drives partitioned as GPT

  • Update GRUB 2.0 and Grub4DOS to latest

  • Update libcdio to latest
