  • External enclosure or adapter for 2013-2015 Air SSDs?

    I'm looking for an external enclosure or adapter/caddy for a 2013/2014/2015 MacBook Air SSD. It's for data recovery purposes only, and I'm having trouble finding one that's for the 2013/2014 models and not 2012. Does anyone have a suggestion or link to one that will accomplish this? I don't deal much with data recovery, and this is for a friend, not a paid job.

    Would prefer one that will connect via USB, but SATA is fine as well, as long as it can be connected to another unit to pull data over.

    I never found one either. Just get another machine.

      Yeah, I figured that's what it would come to. I was going to use that method as a last resort, but my friend lives 3000 miles away (and he doesn't deal in this type of work at all, so no compatible machines on-hand). I'll just have him ship the things to me and I'll do it with another machine. Thanks, Duke.

            OWC do one : https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/MAU3ENPRPCI/ (expensive)

            They also come with their upgrade SSD kits for the same range of machine.

              Thanks! I saw that one from OWC, but noticed this: "Please Note: The OWC Envoy Pro is not compatible with stock Apple Toshiba drives." Any idea why it won't work with the Toshiba drives? That seems a little strange. So it will only work with the Samsung drives?

                    I can say for sure that OWC one works great. It also gives you access to newer 2013 and later retina macbook SSD's. I tested it with the faster mid 2015 retina ssd and compatibility is there. At the time I bought it I wasn't sure if anything else was compatible with the newer drives, since apple uses custom SSD and firmwares.
