Hello! I have the laptop Legion 5-17ACH6H Laptop (Lenovo) and External NVMe SSD Drive 2TB inside the Case ASUS STRIX ARION M.2 NVMe.
My games are installed on this external drive. When I'm playing games or copying huge files (>20GB) my external drive is disconnected for 1 second, so my game crashes.


What have I already tried?
1. I turned off USB selective suspend settings



2. I disabled "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" for every USB port in Device Manager



3. I tried other USB ports (USB, Type-C) and cables.

4. I tried other NVME case (AXAGON EEM2-SG2, M.2 NVMe & SATA Screwless RAW Box USB-C 10Gbps)

5. I updated all drivers, BIOS, and installed all windows updates.

My specs:
Windows 10 Pro X64
BitDefender Total Security 2022

My laptop:



CAN YOU HELP ME? ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I fixed this problem:
  1. I disabled all strange software (Task manager - Startup)
  2. I connected my SSD to the back of the laptop USB port
The problem has gone.
