7. Precautions

When using RUFUS, you need to pay attention to the following points:

1. Back up data: Before making a bootable USB startup disk, be sure to back up your data because the USB disk will be formatted during the production process.
2. Choose the correct boot file: Make sure the boot file you choose is compatible with your operating system and target computer.
3. Check hardware compatibility: Before using RUFUS, please check whether your computer and USB device are compatible. If it is incompatible, RUFUS may not be used, or other problems may occur.
4. Update software: In order to obtain a better user experience and security, it is recommended that you update RUFUS and related software regularly.
5. Avoid unnecessary risks: When using RUFUS, please try to avoid unnecessary risks, such as using boot files from unknown sources. This can help you avoid potential security issues and unnecessary hassles.
