I've done a few re-installs of SL and Lion since originally getting Lion. I most recently did a clean install of Lion via the Recovery Partition. My question is.. Does the Recovery Partition ever get updated? When I've wiped my disk in the past I've only wiped "Macintosh HD" and nothing else. The Recovery Partition doesn't show up in disk utility. I guess if I selected my whole drive it would wipe it, but I never did that. So my question really is each time you install Lion or any system updates does it create/and/or update a new Recovery Partition?
