Rufus Portable creates a bootable USB drive that can help you recover your system when very bad things happen to it.

Booting from a portable device and even running an operating system directly from a flash drive are possible nowadays thanks to some dedicated utilities that can turn any regular USB memory device into more than a simple storage medium.

Rufus Portable’s user interface is small and efficient in layout. It identified five system devices, including the USB thumb drive we chose for our bootable disk.

The ‘Format Options’ area of the application offers most of the customizations and it features an advanced section you can reveal by pressing the small blue-edged arrow.

With a single click for each function, you can activate bad block checks (up to 4 passes), quick format, extended label and icon files.

Be aware that Rufus reformats your USB drive, so be sure to back up and save any existing data before you hit “Start.”

Rufus uses very little space, so you can use the rest of the drive normally. Just keep it handy when disaster strikes!
