I can not get DBAN to work

Recommended Posts

I have d/l DBAN to USB and when i click on it a number of files come up and it will not install to USB. I tried to d/l to my h/d and then install to USB I get a number of files with ext of TXT,CAT,CFG,BIN,BZI. I have clicked on all of them and nothing happens. I am missing something.

Hi;

How are you loading Dban onto the USB - You have to create a bootable drive. For that you need a little tool called Rufus:

 

https://rufus.ie/

 

Run rufus; choos the input file and the destination and you should be good to go.

 

Then make sure the PC is set to boot from USB and you should be able to clean the HD.

I know this is silly but when I run Rufus do,I pick the DBAN file and install on the USB. Will the USB be boot able after the DBAN is installed?

 

PS: Getting old has it's draw backs.
