Lion Recovery Disk Assistant

Apple just released Lion Recovery Disk Assistant via its support site. This little app eases some of the anxieties of Lion's digital distribution on the Mac App Store.

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 will be handy in case a user wants to reinstall Lion after, say, upgrading or replacing the hard drive in their Mac.
