Apple has launched a new utility named Lion Recovery Disk Assistant for the users of their Mac OS X Lion operating system.

Users would be able to create an external recovery disk that could be used to install Lion on their machines in case of a system crash.

Lion comes bundled with a recovery system but it would fail if the hard disk crashes. This utility would come handy in that case.

Lion Recovery Disk Assistant requires the user to have an external disk with at least 1GB storage and a machine running Lion.
