It's an advanced tool.

Since it has to make the USB bootable the changes it makes could test the user's skill level.

I have encountered folk that showed me the failed stick caused by this or another app and in all but one case the stick came back after I used other tools to format the sticks.

The last case I bring to complete the story. They weren't sure if the stick was good to begin with!

PS. Forget to add my question.

Here's my question.

-> Should advanced tools be removed from the market?

It's like offering some Linux CD. It can wipe out the contents of the PC so should we sequester such tools from those that don't know how to use them? Or do some feel that such tools entitle folk to support for same?


PS. Yes I used those words on purpose. Tell me what you think, don't hold back since it's a good topic that I want to know how folk feel about tools that can be a bit in the danger zone.
