BluestSoft launches new tool for bootable backup USB

Allows users to create backup USB from image file

By CBR Staff Writer

BluestSoft has launched new USB Boot Maker, a new software tool that makes a bootable backup USB. It delivers a burnt USB that can boot to run users’ favourite application, instead of having to run from FD/CD/DVD.

The company said that the new product helps to create a bootable USB from a selected media or file, which allows users to create a backup USB from an image file (ISO or IMG) that they can specify. It also creates a generic bootable USB that will burn a generic OS image of Windows PE, Linux, or FreeDOS into USB. After booting from the generic bootable USB, users will be able to run applications.

The benefits of the new application includes, creation of Windows 7/Vista Installation USB by copying Windows 7/Vista Installation CD/DVD to USB memory allowing users to use the USB for installing the programs into their PC. With built-in Windows PE2.0, Linux (KNOPPIX), and FreeDOS, users can create an OS bootable USB and run each OS from it. This allows users to run emergency system recovery or data backup, the company said.

Other benefits include an option to copy necessary boot CDs/DVDs into a USB and play games by booting to run from it and create a back-up USB from a music/movie CD/DVD and play them from the USB.

Mike Inamine, founder of BluestSoft, said: USB Boot Maker complements our current product base by adding a USB bootability, which enables the product to run faster, run an OS independently, and save any data on the USB. Another advantage is that USB has a larger capacity and faster loading and reading speed than a CD/DVD. So whether you’re copying a graphics-rich game, images or digital video, USB Boot Maker saves you time and money.
