Ubuntu Live USB Imager is a Windows application developed to create an Ubuntu Live USB using either an ISO image file or an Ubuntu disc.
Although it’s not quite aimed at beginners, the program is fairly easy to use, mostly thanks to the fact that the main window groups all features for easy access.
First of all, you need to define the source, which can be, as we said, either an ISO image file or a CD/DVD drive. One good thing is that Ubuntu Live USB Imager allows you to download an Ubuntu ISO file from the Internet, which is quite good news for those who don’t know which version to choose.
Of course, the application prompts the user to pick the USB destination drive and the persistence file that’s being used to save changes you make in the operating system. The bigger the persistence file is, the more changes you can save, so an USB drive with a larger capacity is strongly recommended.
You can obviously format the USB flash drive before starting the process, so make sure you back up your files before anything else.
The live USB drive creation disk takes only a few minutes and Ubuntu Live USB Imager uses just a moderate amount of resources to do its job. It works just fine on all Windows versions and even if it doesn’t bundle a help file, it’s still very easy to use by both beginners and those with more experience.
Overall, Ubuntu Live USB Imager is a handy piece of software if you wish to get the flavor of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution without installing it on the hard-disk. It’s fast and easy to use, without slowing down the system at all.
