Rufus screenshotRufus is a small tool that will allow users create bootable USB flash drives: memory sticks, USB keys and more.

It proves it's utility in various cases like: creating USB installation media from ISO images; working on a computer without an OS installed; flashing a BIOS or other firmware from DOS, or running a low-level utility on your PC.

Basic formatting features allow you to examine the device for bad blocks, and pick the algorithm type (from 1 to 4 passes). Plus, you can set the fast format mode, generate an extended label and icon files, as well as make a bootable disk using an ISO image.

Even if it is a small sized application, Rufus is highly functional, providing everything you need.

Rufus is a multilingual tool, being available in 34 languages. Rufus is digitally signed.


  • It's lightweight and intuitive.
  • Allows you to solve complex issues.
