Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 are similar so only the first step will be different.

1: Type in search bar "Create a recovery drive".
2: In the opened window, click "Next".
3: It will detect your USB drive, when it detects click "Create".
4: It will start creating and will show your a confirmation message after completion.

In the previous comment, It's mentioned to delete the recovery drive. Don't ever do that!! This will permanently wipe all your hope to recover PC from problems using the recovery drive. Next thing is, It'll hardly consume not more than 9 or 10 GB which is fare enough.

To create recovery drive on Windows 8.1, directly press 'Window' button + 'Q' and type recovery on the search text bar. From the search result option, click on the recovery drive and follow the on screen steps to create a bootable recovery drive. Also, make sure that you don't have any data on the targeted USB or flash drive as these steps will permanently wipes all your data.

Hope everything is clear now!!

"To save space on your PC, you can delete the recovery image from your PC and use a recovery drive instead. Windows 8.1 includes a built-in tool to create a USB recovery drive. Windows will let you know how big the recovery partition is, and you'll need a USB flash drive at least that big."
