OS X El Capitan Recovery Update now available

OS X El Capitan

Apple on Friday seeded a small update to OS X’s Recovery feature to users running a pre-release version of OS X 10.11 El Capitan. The OS X El Capitan Recovery Update includes improvements to the operating system’s Recovery partition. Like in prior OS X editions, this feature can be invoked at boot time by pressing the Command – R combo.

By entering the system’s Recovery mode, you can fix volume issues with Disk Utility, restore from a Time Machine backup, reinstall the operating system from scratch over the Internet and more.

OS X El Capitan Recovery Update is available through the Mac App Store’s Updates tab on Macs running OS X 10.11 El Capitan Developer Preview.

Earlier this week, Apple seeded a seventh OS X El Capitan beta to members of the Apple Developer Program and released El Capitan beta 5 to public beta testers enrolled into the Apple Beta Software Program.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
