I realize this was a note before Yosemite was official, but while there are approaches to create/recreate a Yosemite recovery partition, I have to say that Carbon Copy Cloner has a mechanism to do so (somewhat clunky, to be sure).

When I back up a disk I would really like to be able to copy the Recovery Partition as well, all at the same time without another application to muck with!
