Portable WinToFlash Lite can create a bootable USB drive containing the necessary files to deploy Windows on any PC, helping you create a backup of the original disc the Windows package is stored on. Moreover, it supports ISO files and archives (ZIP, RAR, DMG, etc.) as its source.
Being a portable application, no installation is required, so you just have to unpack the downloaded archive and run the executable to start Portable Novicorp WinToFlash Lite. You are greeted by a simple interface that encloses two different modes to work with: 'Wizard' and 'Advanced'.
The built-in wizard offers step-by-step guidance to transfer a Windows package to a USB drive, from selecting the source (CD, local folder, ISO, archive) to formatting the USB device and copying the Windows setup files.
Aimed at more experienced users, the 'Advanced' mode offers more flexibility, enabling you to perform various tasks, such as transferring different versions of Windows to a USB drive, erasing disks, creating a bootable MS-DOS drive, an emergency bootloader, a recovery console, or even a multiboot USB drive.
Furthermore, it provides more options related to the desired file system, the partition scheme, the CHS policy to adopt, the boot loader, the UEFI policy, and the total capacity of the device, which can be optionally limited. Additionally, you can instruct the application to check the disk for errors and scan its surface.
Portable Novicorp WinToFlash Lite succeeds in preparing a USB device for hosting a Windows setup package, offering advanced users the options they need to fully control the deployment process.
One of its major advantages is that it can also build a multiboot USB device. In other words, you can place different bootable items (Windows editions, recovery live CDs, offline antivirus editions, and more) on a single USB drive. Therefore, if you plan on deploying different editions of Windows on multiple computers, Portable Novicorp WinToFlash Lite can be of great help.
