More recently a lot of PC’s have been released without any recovery media included, from which Apple joined with their new OS X Lion operating system, from which a lot like Windows once you buy the computer the OS will come pre-installed, which can be handy but as soon as your computer gets into a spot of trouble you have no way of recovering your PC.

Today Apple have finally looked into this issue releasing a new piece of software called the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant, the software is much like the one that is included with some netbooks and allows you to create a disk straight from the OS from which you can use as a recovery disk at a later date.

You can download the new Recovery Disk Assitant straight from Apple’s page today, but you must be aware that once you restore your system you will erase all data that is currently on your drive, so make sure you back all of your data up, from which you could do by either making a partition, or by using a time machine or even an external hard drive.

What do you think? Do you think this took Apple to long to release? Have you used it yet?
