Yes it included the 2011 update, and i was able to clone the disk as a safety keepsake if needed. It is still though relied on the serial number of my Audya to operate correctly, hence the copy protection built in. So the pen drives? Don't understand why if the Audya serial imprint is on them once used, why you cant use them as many times as you want on your Audya?.
Also i am pleased you have the restore disks, my dealer (the only one in Australia) does not, and did not know about them, so it appears the good news to dealers has not reached us.
I am extremely happy with AJ's drive, and i'm very much looking forward to an update version coming soon from AJ as well
