Recover Data on Fried X1 Carbon (original)

Hi all,


I have an X1 Carbon 3443-CTO (original X1 Carbon from 2012). The motherboard seems to have fried, and I'm out of warranty, so I went ahead and ordered a new laptop.


I have data on the SSD of my X1C that I'd like to retrieve if possible, but I've been looking around and it seems like the size/interface of the SSD is proprietary (?). Is there a way I can connect the SSD to another machine to retrieve the data, via some sort of enclosure, or other method?

Hello and welcome,


I think this adapter would help.  I haven't tried it or verified that it's the right one.  Please verify yourself.  You should be able to Google up several possible adapters.
