Rufus 2.6.818 Final
is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.
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 doesnt have an OS installed

you want to run a low-level utility
Despite its small size, Rufus
