Rufus Updated to version 3.13. Rufus is a nifty little program that helps you create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pen drives, memory sticks, etc.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISO’s (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 very small size, Rufus provides everything you need!

Changes and Fixes in this release are:

  • Add a cheat mode (Alt-M) to accept disk images without a Boot Marker
  • Add marquee operation progress to the taskbar icon
  • Add zeroing/image writing progress to the log
  • Switch to using 0x55 and 0xAA instead of 0x00 and 0xFF for low pass badblock check
  • Switch to using fake/manufacturer units when computing the default label
  • Fix overnumerous write retries on error when writing a disk image
  • Work around Windows’ abysmal handling of removable drives that contain an ESP
  • Improve mounting/unmounting of volumes
  • Update UEFI:NTFS file system drivers to version 1.7
  • Other internal fixes and improvements (VDS, error reporting, etc.)
