Hello,

 

Very interesting.  Here's a quote of the article, just in case any one who is reading this from work has it blocked:

 

Hello,

Running Seagate SeaTools for Windows diagnostic software on computers which also contain Samsung NVMe SSDs results in the SSD being bricked.

There is a message thread in Lenovo´s support forum discussing the issue:

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/Seagate-software-killed-my-Samsung-SSD/td-p/3805869/page/2

It doesn´t appear to be a Lenovo issue, per se, but rather one between Seagate and Samsung.

The fix is incorporated into Seagate SeaTools for Windows v1.4.0.6, which can be downloaded from Seagate´s support web site at https://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/.
