After playing around with Boot Camp and trying to install Windows 7, I somehow unmounted, erased and deleted my recovery partition.  As I know it would be moot to even ask whether it's possible to restore something that's been formatted over, my question now becomes:


How do I go about getting that data that was on my recovery partition?  I have everything backed up so it would be ideal to get my laptop back to factory conditions.


What is the process to do this?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 64-bit
