pascor22234 is partially correct. You can't restore the data back to the recovery partition after you have made the recovery discs without reformatting the user partition at the same time.
The recovery discs do however recreate the restore partiton, even on a new freshly formatted drive.
After the data is copied to the restore partition, the user partition is created and formatted.
In other words, if you replace the drive with a new one and use the recovery cd's, you get a restore partition wether you like it or not.
