A SanDisk SSD Plus 120GB drive got permanently locked on a HP business laptop after the DriveLock password was set. SanDisk® Global Customer Care (really?) basically told me that I was SOL and steered me toward HP. The thing is, I've been using the DriveLock feature on HP and IBM business laptops for a couple of decades with HDDs (and SDDs) from many different manufacturers. There's obviously some DriveLock handshake issue in their firmware. I'm so glad I didn't buy one of their more expensive SDDs. I'll be sure to avoid their SDDs from now on.
