Small, simple and does everything it needs to without any unnecessary bells and whistles.
I was looking for replacement of SUSE Studio ImageWriter and so far this one has everything I needed.
Open source, ad free, bloat free, minimal utility!
I was trying to make a full backup of a bootable Linux SD Card containing multiple partitions, on Windows.
All the recommendations I could referred to Win32DiskImager, but it's quite old software as of now and wouldn't start on my Windows 10 Pro (2021) build.
USBImager did the job fine, and apparently works on pretty much every OS.. and! backed up the SD Card in the more fitting .dd file format.
I'm so sick of getting hounded to pay for the simpliest of software, another site just advertised some program in place of actually providing an alternative to the already free but dated software.
Finding this made me so happy, I made and account to give it a big ol' HEART, and leave this review. Thank you to the creators for producing this minimalistic software for a task that should be considered simple, for free.
You absolute bloody legends.
A competent alternative to rufus on windows and the best img/iso burner on Raspberry pi.
Easy to install, super fast and light.
USBImager is a cross-platform application to write ISO images onto USB sticks.
The unzipped application is less than 400 kilobytes, which is very nice given balenaEtcher is a 80-100 megabytes download and several hundred megabytes when unzipped.
Basically it does the same thing as balenaEtcher but as a native application rather than a bloated Electron application.
It's also able to make byte-for-byte backups of drives, but I haven't tested this yet.
I suspect that overtime USBImager will become the default USB imaging tool for many users.
