How do I recover data after removing my drive

My MacBook Pro broke and since it's not repairable so I decided to just buy a new one only I found that this does not contain a conventional Drive I believe I removed the right Drive under the trackpad If that's not it please correct me in your answer anyway I was wondering since it's not a conventional drive like most other laptops what kind of adapter do I need to pull the data from the drive this is not the first time that I removed the drive from a laptop but every other hard drive looked the same and required very common easy to find adapters to pull the data off if anyone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it I have a lot of very important files on the drive and I really need to recover them

Here's how to remove it: MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Early 2013 SSD Replacement

Next it can be put into an external enclosure. This would be a OWC Envoy Pro http://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/MAU3E...

These Envoys can sometimes be found much cheaper on eBay as people buy them, use them once for recovery and then sell them. I got mine for about $30.00

You can also first see if you can boot it into ``Target Mode using another Mac and access the drive that way. If so, after you have your data, reformat the drive and see if you can do an internet install. If that works all you will need to do is replace the display which is easy.

I think it is an PCIe connection (could be wrong). So the flash memory drive is enclosed inside apples little proprietary case but can be removed. Here is a good video showing him remove the flash memory card from the enclosure.

They do make adapters for it, just do some searching to find one you like:

That adapter will not work with Apples proprietary flash drives.

Hey Sonic, data recovery is not difficult for normal data loss problem, but if the hard drive is damaged, then the first thing you need to pay attention to is fixing the hard drive.

But you need to notice that after fixing the hard drive, all the files are gone and it seems like it is a new hard drive. At this moment, don't put any new files into the drive 'cause if this happens, you will meet data overwritten situation and if this happens, the chance of data recovery will be reduced.
