Rufus for Windows is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys or pen drives, and memory sticks.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs;
  • 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 is also portable, meaning you can carry it around on your thumb drive and use it on any computer.

Overall, Rufus is a handy little tool that can save you a lot of time and hassle. Whether you're trying to create a bootable USB drive for Windows or Linux, Rufus is worth checking out.
