balenaEtcher- Flash OS images to SD cards & USB drives

The interface of balenaetcher
is sleek and contemporary. A single window can be used to specify both the drive to save the image on and the image to burn. By doing this, you can avoid the additional confusion that comes from frequently responding to pop-up boxes and opening new windows. The app only supports a small number of image file formats, including ISO, ZIP, and IMG.

You will be relieved to learn that the majority of tasks are handled automatically by the app. The only thing you need to do is choose the OS image and the card. If your computer is connected to more than one drive, it will allow you to select the drive for processing. Unfortunately, the app doesn't have many settings options, so you'll have to make the most of what it does have. The error-reporting tool, on the other hand, can be activated and set to unmount automatically upon success.
