What Type of USB Enclosure for this NVMe ?

Hi

Am wanting to read the data on this drive

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/185327343065

What type of USB enclosure do I need

I have one type called USB3.0 to NGFF(M.2) - but it won't fit in in it

Confused ???

Thanks

This one on ebay that you linked too;
Genuine Lenovo 128GB M.2 NVME M.2 SSD From New Laptop MZ-ALQ1280 MZALQ128HBHQ

If that is what you have.
Then the USB Adapter you have currently{USB 3.0 to NGFF(M.2)}, will not work.

You need a USB 3.0 to NVME(M.2) Adapter, or one that supports multiple connector formats.

Here's the Wikipedia on the different M.2 Formats

That should work.


But make sure the connector matches the M.2 SSD you have.
