Hi

I note that a Lion Recovery Update is available (12/10/2011) but Software Update doesn't pick it up. Can I therefore assume it was already in my recent Lion Installation (10.7.2) downloaded on 14/10 or should it be downloaded separately and installed? The only thing SU has installed since upgrading to Lion is iTunes 10.5

Many thanks

Click on the apple icon in your menu bar (top left of your screen). Click "About this Mac" and it will tell you what version is installed. You probably have 7.2 already and that's why the SU is not alerting you.

The OS X.7.2 and the Recovery update all came in the one parcel, from memory they were about 448MB each.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
