Dead motherboard, need data from hard drive X1 Carbon (Gen 2)

2019-08-19, 7:39 AM
I have an X1 Carbon 2nd gen with a motherboard that just failed on me. I've ordered a new X1 Carbon 7th gen, but I need to pull the data off the hard drive of the 2nd generation.  It's the original 256 GB SSD drive. What's the best/easiest solution to do so? I guess I'm looking at some kind of external case or hookup/adapter to another computer, but no idea what specifically I should be looking at. Specific product or link to it would be a big help. 
Thanks!

The X1C Gen 2 uses a 2280 SATA m.2 SSD, so one of the many m.2 SATA/USB adapters.  The one I use:
