Rufus is an open source portable software, used for creating bootable usb drives and formats them at the same time. These bootable discs can then be used to run utilities such as Windows installations and boot software such as Hirens.
Rufus has the main feature of the burning functionality, and has the ability to burn all windows ISO files, such as Windows XP, 7,8 and 10. Users are also able to burn all Linux-based ISO files, and many useful boot softwares in ISO format, such as the Hirens Boot CD. Rufus has the ability to handle both UEFI and Legacy bios modes, making it useful in any BIOS version for a wide range of computers. In partitioning, Rufus can use GPT or MBR partitions well, depending on a user’s preference.
Being open sourced has ensured it can be used by any user, and portability, makes it a household solution, since it doesn’t use up any computer memory in installation.
