Primary Functions and Usability

Rufus is known as offering a very clear user interface, so only a minimal amount of technical knowledge will be required It allows for a lean and agile memory management and optimization of your operating system. Specific fields such as the selected device, the partition, the file system and the cluster size will need to be completed. Once the user manually enters in the desired label, the USB creation process will begin. It will show all progress and once it has been completed, the drive can be activated immediately. So, it is now very easy to format new flash drives and memory sticks.

It currently supports a number of languages and it is capable of functioning with both 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems (XP or later). It is also able to create a separate ISO image when required.
