Rufus is a simple utility that allows you to format and create bootable USB drives. The latter are used to install operating systems and run some programs. The application detects all supported drives by itself and displays basic information about them. It also allows you to analyze the flash drive for broken sectors and change its identifier.

Working with the program is very easy. First of all, you need to insert a removable drive, select the necessary image using the file manager and click on the "Start" button. Depending on the supported recording speed and the size of the image being recorded, this process of creating a boot disk can take from a couple of minutes to a half an hour.

- Supports any size of USB storage device;

- allows us to identify broken sectors;

- has a very simple user interface;

- allows you to format the drive;

- is distributed completely free of charge.

Rufus is an amazing software! It allows me to create simple bootable USB drives. Its user interface is so easy to use. The program is easy to use even for the novice who is new to all of this. Its a very fast software too! It helps me get my files copied over in no time at all.
I'm a big fan of Rufus because it has helped me a number of times when I've needed to make my own bootable USB flash drives. This program is great because it not only allows you to create these kinds of drives, but it will also allow you to format them too. And, it doesn't just create flash drives. It also helps you create memory sticks as well.
A bootable USB drive is something my son would want I am sure. The Drive Properties for Rufus 3.0.1304 in an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS amd64 (G:)8 GB. Maybe that makes it faster. The file system is a FAT32. This device will help format all other flash drives. It is fast and supported by a ton of languages. All you gotta do is download the executable. There's a speed comparison online and Rufus is definitely faster without a doubt.
I work in computer repair. Rufus for Windows is a great software to use when repairing clients' Windows machines or setting up new machines for clients. Creating bootable USB Win10 drives is easy and fast with Rufus. Just download the ISO and load it to the software and things will be all done. Really great software to use!
