No Recovery Partition
Somehow or another, my MacBook Air SSD no longer has a recovery partition.

$ diskutil list
0: GUID_partition_scheme *251.0 GB disk0
1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS Internal 250.1 GB disk0s2

I have *2* separate bootable drives from SuperDuper, so maybe I don't even need to worry about it.

Neither of the backup drives have a recovery partition either (maybe that's obvious, but I figured I'd mention it).

If I *did* want to get it back, anyone know how to best go about that? Google is remarkably unhelpful.

(I am running 10.7.1.)

If you reinstall Lion (use your USB recovery key or your MBA "internet recovery"), that should preserve your files and recreate your recovery partition.
