Apple Releases Lion Recovery Disk Assistant
Monday, August 08, 2011 - 10:29 PM EST
Posted by: Staff

Apple today released the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant via their Software Update Utility and website for direct download. According to the company, the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant lets you create Lion Recovery on an external drive that has all of the same capabilities as the built-in Lion Recovery: reinstall Lion, repair the disk using Disk Utility, restore from a Time Machine backup, or browse the web with Safari. This drive can be used in the event you cannot start your computer with the built-in Recovery HD, or you have replaced the hard drive with a new one that does not have Mac OS X installed. The Lion Recovery Disk Assistant weighs in at 1.07MB and requires a Mac running OS X Lion with an existing Recovery HD. You also need a USB hard drive or thumb drive with at least 1GB of free space for creating the recovery disk.
