Adapter for retrieving data from x1 ssd

2014-06-11, 18:59 PM

Hi all,


The motherboard on my x1 is shot after dropping my x1 (refurb with no protection coverage) and it would be too coslty to repair. I would like to get the files off of the 128GB ssd if at all possible. I can't seem to find an adapter however that fits this particular ssd as it seems to be especially made for the x1. Does anyone know if there are any adapters out there that fit this particular model of ssd?

Just run it through Google. There are adapters at Amazon and eBay, and other places.

Be attentive as the x1c Gen 2 (2014) laptop uses SSD in m.2 form factor (and connector) while x1c with Machine-Type 34xx uses Lenovo proprietary Small Form Factor (SFF) drive. Drive connectors differ.
