WinToFlash Review

Tina de Pierre
Prep the USB drive to become a bootable replacement for Windows Setup CD
A review of WinToFlash by Tina de Pierre

WinToFlash is an excellent and useful little utility which allows users to use a USB device to install Windows instead of having to have the disc available.

To use WinToFlash, all you have to do is unzip the file, connect your USB thumbdrive, insert your Windows disc and select the options.

One of the great things about using a program such as this instead of the original CD is to protect the original product from wear and tear; it is also useful for modern laptops (such as ultrabooks) which do not have an optical drive.

WinToFlash provides for an excellent alternative to using a Windows disc to perform clean installations.

WinToFlash is software which can create bootable disks.
