rufus 3.15 beta

Again, it’s been a while since we saw a new updated version of Rufus.

It’s a small and free program, you can use to easily create a bootable USB Pen Drive.

With this tiny program, you can make a bootable install medium, needed to install your new Windows 10 or Windows 11.

After a successful track record, the developer has come up with an even better and more secure version of the program, containing some improvements, and enhanced safety checks.
