    Hey I hope someone else who has had this issue could help me. I'm using an external Samsung T5 SSD and whenever I try to do anything with it my mouse lags every couple seconds and it's unbearable. Strangely nothing else seems to be lagging other than my mouse pointer.....any ideas?

    System specs: Core i7 7700k and 16GB of Corsair Dominator 3200mhz RAM with ASUS Z270 Prime motherboard and a RTX 2080TI....also using an external USB 8TB HD and 2 internal SSDS one on m.2 and one SATA.

    use an extender cable and place the dongle away from the drive.
