Easily create a bootable USB flash drive version of your Windows CD or DVD

WinToFlash Lite is an easy-to-use tool which will quickly create a bootable USB flash drive version of your Windows installation disc.

This could be very useful if, say, you need to install (or reinstall) Windows on a netbook, or any other system which doesn't have a working optical drive. Or if you manage a network and are always reinstalling Windows, for instance, doing so from a USB flash drive rather than a DVD could significantly speed up the installation process.

If your needs are basic then this is all surprisingly straightforward. Essentially you just have to point the program at your installation DVD, and the flash drive you'd like to use, and that's about it: WinToFlash handles everything else for you.

Switch to advanced mode and you're also able to create Windows PE, DOS or other bootable environments, as well as making low level tweaks to the file system and elsewhere.

And note also that this version is free for non-commercial use only, and includes ads. These are fairly unobtrusive, but if you like you can purchase a personal licence to remove them (current cost is $5.77); a Professional licence ($29.95) adds more functionality, and commercial use requires the purchase of a Business licence ($100). See the WinToFlash site for more.

Verdict:

WinToFlash provides a convenient way to speed up your Windows installations.

It's a shame that nobody said if it supports burning your USB using an ISO file from Windows, without the need for extra tools. As it is I will continue using Rufus or Win-to-Bootic to turn ISO's into bootable USB keys. Also none of those 2 has annoying ads, and they are absolutely freeware.

A convenient tool

WinToFlash is one of those tools you wish was existing before finding out someone actually did it.

Last year I was trying to repair a friend's computer and there was this issue: the CD/DVD player was dead. There was no way to reinstall Windows through the classical process. This tool simply saved me a lot of time and to my friend a great deal of money.

I've used this software about 10 times since then, with different Windows distributions, and it always did a good job.

Novicorp's website is displaying a top10 of the fastest USB keys. This tool works best when you use a fast key. Time wise and stability wise this tool is your best friend when it comes to reinstall a machine.

In addition I use Slysoft's Virtual CloneDrive available for free.

I only reinstall machines using the USB key. Give it a try!

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
