Create Multiboot USB

Over a 100 items are available, see List of supported multiboot items in 1.9.0000
Downloads and cache
WinToFlash can download any ISO with antivirus, recovery tool, LiveDVD, partitioning software, linux, android, etc. for you automatically from a menu and cache it on a hard drive for future faster access.
If something is wrong, i.e. autodownload URL is broken, server is offline and etc. WinToFlash offers you to visit download web site manually with a browser and select an ISO image later.
Simple Wizard is available for fast Windows Setup USB creation with only 2 options!
You can save your multiboot or singleboot USB drive configuration into a file and load it back any time later to use again without setting everything up again.
