Can someone clue me in about RecoveryDiskAssistant? I tried to use it to make a USB thumb drive with a recovery partition, thinking I would install a basic Lion system on the drive too, with only Disk Warrior added, just in case the internal drive on the Mac Mini 2011 went south. After running RecoveryDiskAssistant, the drive was seen in Disk Utility, no partition seen, but with the same remaining space as the drive had right after I formatted it (GUID partition). Can I just make a partition and still retain the hidden Recovery partition? Or will partitioning the USB drive erase the recovery partition? Apple's documents are not so clear on this (at least I cannot find any explanation about it.
