Adapter for MBA 13" Mid 2013 PCIe drive to SATA or USB?

Hello everyone,

I work at a computer repair shop and since the new MacBook Airs have been out for a bit, we have come across instances where we are unable to get data from a machine simply because we don't have the tool to do it.

I am looking for an adapter that will take the PCIe SSD in a Mid/Late 2013 MacBook Air (or MacBook Pro Retina Mid/Late 2013) SSD to either SATA or USB.

So far, any searches have come up empty.

Any help would be appreciated.

Would this type of drive work in a Mini PCIe slot like what many systems have for Wifi/BT card?

I've faced the same problem! Sadly, there is no options right now. There are no external drive cases for the newer PCIe drives currently.

What I do is use a second '13 Air popping the SSD into it and then putting it into Target Mode with a USB cable copy off what was needed.

That is what I have been doing. Maybe, just maybe, we will get something.

Thanks

I've found some 2013-2014 ssd to pcie adapters on ebay. Doesn't really help unless you have a mac pro to pop the ssd into or have a pcie to thunderbolt enclosure (which run about $400 ata minimum).
