Rufus, a highly acclaimed tool for creating bootable drives for Windows (and other operating systems), is able to download Windows ISO files directly from Microsoft. Its built-in Fido script makes Rufus 3.21 a comprehensive application for those who require a USB drive to clean-install Windows.
Microsoft has recently implemented several restrictions on third-party access to its servers. Despite these measures, the developers behind Rufus and Fido have managed to find a way to circumvent these countermeasures and released the latest Fido 1.40 update, which allows users to download Windows ISO files once again. Rufus automatically updates the built-in Fido script to the latest version.
