Rufus Portable for Windows


Rufus Portable is a portable fast program for creating bootable flash drives from ISO images and formatting flash drives. You can download Rufus Portable for free for 32 and 64-bit Windows (from XP to 10). The utility supports 39 languages, including Russian.

With Rufus you can
get information about the technical parameters of the USB drive;
format a USB flash drive, memory card, PenDrive or USB keys;
create an installation flash drive or USB keys;
flash or update BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) from DOS;
install an operating system on a computer or laptop;
run low-level system utilities – when the operating system does not load on the PC, it is necessary to restore the damaged sectors on the hard drive or you need to check the operation of the RAM;
run games that require the original disc to work.
If, when creating a DOS boot disk, Rufus detects that a non-Latin keyboard is used, the program will select a layout that matches the regional settings of the user’s system and recommend FreeDOS as the default – this free OS supports more languages than MS DOS.

The Rufus program works with ISO images created in most common operating systems, as well as with several file systems, including NTFS, FAT32 and others.

The Rufus utility is very light (about 0.9 MB) and fast: according to the developers, it creates a Windows 7, Windows 10 boot disk from an official ISO image twice as fast as its counterparts (for example, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool). In addition, the completely open source allows interested users to develop and improve Rufus by contributing their own add-ons.
