Assuming you are still s off,you just need to pack up your recovery image into a zip file with an android info text document. This type of file is easily installed via fastboot and ruu mode.

The easiest way to make this file is to take another file,like the firmware file from an OTApkg or an ruu. Extract it,and delete everything but the android info text file. Insert your recovery image. Rezip.

Alternately,you could always re-unlock the old fashioned way,via htcdev. Depending on if any parameters have changed,you may even be able.to use your original unlock_code.bin

not back up, pack up!
Like he said, use a firmware.zip archive from i.e. a ruu or ota. Delete all file except the android-info-txt. Place your custom recovery named recovery.img in that archive then flash it in ruu mode, make sure the android-info.txt match your device info, edit it as required.
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
fastboot reboot-bootloader

You don't back up your recovery image. You use the one you want to install(twrp or clockwork)

Yes,you can do it without root. But as I said,you must be s off.
