Adapter for 2017 MBP SSD
I have a dead 2017 13” MacBook Pro (Function Keys) and need to read the SSD that I’ve removed. Is there an adapter to access it elsewhere? I’ve done a little research and can’t find any info.
I believe this is the drive Dominic is referring to:
It’s a Gen 5 referenced above, a proprietary SSD that has no adapters or enclosures that I can find.
Between Secure Boot, encryption and proprietary drives, Apple seems to be closing the door on data recovery. A drive or machine failure may well doom all data without a current backup.
Cody Henderson of BeetsTech posted an outstanding guide to Apple SSDs that includes a number of Gen 5 drives at the bottom of his list: The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs
I am almost positive the answer is Yes!
can you give us an image of the type of SSD you have? (specifically the connectors on the drive)
if it is a standard SATA connector then there are many inexpensive adapters that can allow you to connect that drive up to another computer via USB
