Can you recover/use the SSD in this computer in a Windows 10 PC?

I had a mishap with a pop spill on this device and upon pulling it apart the inside is quite rough, the battery is shot and its not worth it to me to fix. However I was curious if I could pull anything off of the SSD in it using my M.2 slot in my PC that runs Windows 10. Thanks for any response's!

Sorry you can't fit this SSD into the M.2 slot within your Windows PC system.

But! You still can gain access to the files on the SSD using a special external case: OWC Envoy Pro Portable, Bus-Powered USB 3.0 Enclosure - For Apple Flash SSDs (June 2013-Current Mac Models). That solves the hardware side of things.

For the software side of things you'll need a special Windows drive so you can mount up the Mac volume. Here's a bit more on how to do it: How to Read a Mac-Formatted Drive on a Windows PC

Frankly, I think it would make sense here to find another Mac system to access your files and only copy off what you need to onto a USB thumb drive (FAT32 or exFAT formatted). As you don't want to risk damaging your SSD if you make a mistake here.

Yet again you have beat me to it! The knowledgeable is faster than than the researcher.

George - Research is great and you learn a tremendous amount by doing it. But experience is cruel teacher but you learn it to a much greater extent. There are many subjects that we are asked questions on that there are no answers. Those are the ones to do research on. Pick a couple of new products that there are no experts on. Do the research, work on a few, find out where to get the parts. Something that us old gezzers don't know about or care about. Like these two wheel boards that burst into flame. Or the fitness watches, or the small drones. Buy some broken ones, do the repair guides, find sources, manuals, etc. In six months you can become the top expert in the world.

Yea, I get a lot of broken stuff that I get to fix or tinker with. I do research, discover replacement stuff is to pricey, then turn it into something else. For instance, I had a drone that had a broken motor because my dog bit it. A new set of motors was $10, which was half the price of the drone, so took it apart and found that the remaining three still worked if I applied 1.5v DC power. Now I'm working on a 3d model to fit 4 AA batteries and three motors to create a personal mobile fan which my brother will print on his 3D printer. I love it when stuff just works when current is applied.

I was not sure I just know it looked like a M.2 slot does. I will look more into this I have another MacBook that isn't working that I also asked a question about on here and if I get it working I will just transfer all the files to it. If you all don't care look into this post as well and see if you have any resolutions. Will not turn on, charges with orange and green light on Magsafe..

Also if I reformatted this drive could I use it in a Windows PC?
