    Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

    It can be especially useful for cases where:
    • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
    • you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
    • you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
    • you want to run a low-level utility

    Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!
    Oh, and Rufus is fast. For instance it's about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO (with honorable mention to WiNToBootic for managing to keep up). It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs .

    My friends and colleagues all complain about it ,as a free tool, it is not responsible for any user .
    I had a previous experience of failure about it,personally, it is best for non-professionals to choose other simple methods.
