Apparently this not only affects Lenovo, but can be any other manufacturer.
I just did some ticket review to respond to this accurately!!
checking back on my notes, I decided it was 100% bitlocker related, as it bricked multiple identical docks across multiple laptop OEMs.
unfortunately, we've yet to get a single office to send back one of the dead docks for proper investigation, but based on all the clues we came to the conclusion that BitLocker encrypted the drive storage on the docks, as they show up as a Z: drive in windows.
after bitlocking, z drive gone, and ability to see the partition on the dock is also gone.
and by after bitlocking, I mean like 15 minutes after rolling out the policy. Unfortunately, the top tier infrastructure bros are cliche af, so I'm unaware of how they mitigated the issue going forward. Likely restricted bit-locker to C Drives only.

Haven't had any of these issues yet..
do you have many remote offices? We have huge issues with hardware poaching. Management will gut new hire packets, & pawn off ancient systems on the new hires instead.
so frustrating, because all they'd need to do is ask, n they'd get just as new, and even higher end hardware. Anyways, These boss ladies would've never had issues if they would've stuck to the original USB3.04K lenovo docks they had.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
