How much drive space you will be needing to install the update :-
In most cases, you’ll need the following amount of available drive space on your PC to download and install the Windows 8.1 Update, depending on your version of Windows:
- Windows 8.1 (64-bit version) : 2 GB
- Windows 8.1 (32-bit version) : 0.8 GB

These amounts are estimates, so you might need slightly more or less available drive space for the update. To learn how to check the current space on your PC and free up space
For this firstly you need to download appropriate Setup Update for your Windows 8.1 OS Environment, to download go to the below link.
