portable Portable

USB formatting utility Rufus (Reliable USB Formatting Utility) is a small, portable utility designed to format and create bootable USB flash drives. It can be used to create USB installation media from bootable ISO images (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.) or as a low-level utility to boot a PC without operating system. Using the program is straightforward - simply select the USB drive that you want to format and choose the partition scheme and file system. There are additional options to check for bad blocks and create extended labels and icon files (autorun.inf), as well as advanced options for BIOS compatibility. Rufus supports UEFI as well as GPT for installation media. Copyright

Invaluable 5 stars by Sayles Apr 23, 2016 (Read all my 3 reviews)
When I had a corrupted Laptop, Rufus let me format a USB drive with a UEFI bootable Windows 10 iso and get it back up and running when everything else had failed. It is another one of those tools that has to be in your IT bag. show Review details
