Need an enclosure, not sure what to buy. Yoga 900s

2017-03-04, 17:41 PM

Hello. I recently purchase the Yoga 900s with 256GB PCIe SSD. This is my first experience with an SSD. I had to send the pc for warranty repair due to a faulty speaker and "r" key. Lenovo did not have parts available so offered to replace the unit and return my hard drive. I need to get my data off the original and believe I need to purchase an enclosure but after hours of research, am still not sure which type of enclosure I need to get (or if there is an alternative solution). I greatly appreciate any assistance that can be provided. 

Solved! See the solution

First, let me say I have not used this product, but I have used a very similar one to work with SATA format M.2 cards.  I have one of these on order, but it hasn't come yet. I use them to test drives without mounting them in a machine.  I am not recommending a particular seller.

What appears to be the same device on Amazon says this:  "Please note that it supports SATA-based B Key SSD only. It does NOT support PCI-E based B key & any M key SSD"

 

As I read it that won't work with an NVMe SSD.

 

Let us know how it goes.  I'm looking for one of these too.

Thank you. Yes I saw the fine print just before I almost ordered. I have searched everywhere for one of the adapters for M key NVMe to no avail. I too would love to know if anyone finds one.
