Legion Y520 and LaCie 2BIG Dock

2019-11-04, 4:15 AM

I used my Y520 for gaming a little, then started using it for Photoshop and Lightroom.  Works pretty well since I upgraded to a 1TB Nvme primary drive.  I am running Windows 10 1903 with 32 gigs RAM and the aforementioned 1TB primary with the Nvidia Ti1050.  My question is will this device support a LaCie 2big dock 8TB on the usb-c port?  I have a refurbished LaCie unit and I can not get the drives to mount.  Everything else works, LaCie Raid Manager does not find the device.

Hi Fred51! 


Welcome to the Lenovo forum discussion! 


As we were checking here, the Lenovo Legion Y520 comes with a USB-C Gen1 port with does not have a Thunderbolt feature (see the specs here https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/Lenovo_Laptops/Lenovo_Legion_Y520_15?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6). However, the LaCie 2BIG Dock require a USB-C port with a Thunderbolt port (3rd party link https://www.lacie.com/as/en/manuals/2big-dock-tbolt3/connect-your-lacie-2big-dock-thunderbolt-3/) in order to work on a PC or laptop and that could be the reason why the LaCie 2BIG Dock is not working on the Y520.
