Getting the right tools to burn Iso or image files into disks has always been hard but developers where able to been this and made several tools which could easily do this. After that there were also many who wanted to be able to use an iso file that could be used in booting or installation. This is when rufus was born.

Rufus is a tool that can be used to easily burn and iso or image file, denoted by .iso as the extension, into an external hard drive or flash drive. It works in many ways and also has other extension by which you can burn images out of. Its interface is well laid out with easy to use terms, so as to suit anyone who wants to use it.

Rufus was made basically as a wyswig kind of tool so as to avoid any confusion as to what goes where.


You actually need to understand that rufus acts like a plug and play tool, so no installation is needed. Once you launch it you will be met by the interface with

1. The title and the version you have.

2. Device (column)

3. Partition scheme and target system type (column)

4. Cluster size (column)

5. New volume label.

6. Format option.

All of this are easy to understand when you start using.

Now when you insert an external flash, the vice column will show the devices name, partition will show the partitions in the device, cluster will show the size of your device and so on.

Once you have inserted the flash and all the info is displayed, you will just head over to the format options and click on (create a bootable disk using) choose iso if that’s file extension you have. Others are Ms-Dos , FreeDos , iso image and DD image.

Once you have selected the one you want to use. Click on the drive button infront of the extension you have chosen and navigate to where your file is located in the computer.

Once you are satisfied with all that you have chosen, click on the “Start” button.

NB.. Rufus doesn’t allow you to burn if the device has any content inside. So make sure you have backed up everything because you will be prompted to format the device.
