SPP highlight recovery question...

Guys,

I still don't know much about neat post processing but i have made a new year resolution that i will learn photoshop and light room and SPP....

So here's the question:

In SPP/Light room...when we pull highlights back...how do we know that ok, this is enough...and now no more recovery can be done. I do it with the help of blinking RED...and when they disappear, i stop...

I noticed that is not a clear cut method...red blinkers will go as you pull back exposure, but there will not be any details in the area...only it will go dark...

So what's the way we know how much recovery can be done, and what are the areas where nothing can be done/detail is lost permanently....?

i hope i was clear
