    how can i create bootable usb disk on key of my windows 8?

    I have on my pc windows 8.1
    What i want to do is to insert simple disk on key i have to my pc usb and with some simple software automatic to create on the disk on key windows 8.1 bootable system.

    Not to install windows 8.1 on my laptop but to be able to boot from the disk on key to access my hard drives on the laptop. The problem is that the windows xp system on my laptop is damaged i can't get to the windows xp in any case.

    So i want a bootable system on the usb to be able to look into my hard drive/s of my laptop.

    How can i do it ? ( I mean that the disk on key will act like c:\ drive so i can then go to d:\ and e:\ and look for my files for backup. )

    win8.1 will not boot from a usb device as a live OS [mine wouldn't anyway ].except for [windows to go ,but you need win8 enterprise for that ,] You would be better off using Linux live usb to get the files
