Rufus 1.4.6 Build 440

Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc. 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 USBs from ISOs. A non-exhaustive list of Rufus supported ISOs is available here.

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

What’s new in this version:

  • Display USB size in the dropdown list
  • Add Bulgarian translation, courtesy of Krasimir Nevenov
  • Improve checkbox handling in the UI and fix UDF/exFAT formatting issues
  • Fix replacement of obsolete vesamenu.c32 (reported by Liang)
  • Fix an issue that could prevent the download of files from the Rufus website
  • Fix untimely libcdio messages when processing Rock-Ridge ISOs (such as Ubuntu)
  • Other fixes
