Apple Lion Recovery Disk Assistant — But There is a BETTER WAY

Apple has released Apple Lion Recovery Disk Assistant, which is all well and good. But in my view, it’s a half-way solution to the real problem—

I don’t want to recover or restore a system, because I want to be up and running in under a minute with all my stuff (apps, preferences, mail, etc).

That’s why making a daily clone of your system is the smart move, and you can partition a backup drive to ALSO have another data volume, too, so your world is complete. You can boot off the clone at any time, and never miss a beat.

Internal disk bad? Clone the clone back over the bad internal drive.

Here’s the backup drive to use for desktop systems.

Here’s the backup drive to use for laptop systems.

Get the “quad interface” model, and I recommend no fewer than 3 backups, stored safely away from the computer. See my backup articles.
