How can I create USB support with This Software?
Nothing could be easier: after connecting the media (pen drive or any removable media are supported) press the ” Search USB ” button. All devices connected and formatted with FAT32 will be searched and displayed. Clearly, the choice is enabled only if more than one USB drive is found. In any case, in the “Report” tab sheet you can find all the characteristics of the selected USB: Type (Removable or Hard Disk), Serial, Label, Used space, and free space.
SARDU does not format the drive but writes/overwrites data. By pressing the button with the USB icon, after asking if you are sure you want to create a USB with SARDU, the software extracts the necessary files, one ISO image at a time, and copies them to the USB support; after careful examination, it acquires the menu and creates the USB multiboot.
SARDU on USB is incremental: you can later add new software or manually delete old programs. Creating the menu is done by checking the USB media.
The incremental function can also be activated by going to the menu: USB -> Update USB. If the SARDU menu is damaged or if the device is no longer bootable just go to USB -> Update only SARDU’s menu.
The interface of the application is easy to use and allows you to download or manually add the images that you want to use. The included download manager can handle multiple processes at once. It requires insignificant resources while downloading the images or creating the bootable ISO.
Although it prompts you to install other components such as toolbars, SARDU is a practical tool for all the users that want to create a bootable recovery disk with minimum effort. It includes features for both novice and experienced users, as well as documentation for the most important operations.
