M.2 NVME Exclosure help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need to back up data from my NVME M.2 drive from my Blade and I can't find an enclosure that supports it. I bought one but it is only a B key config and I need the M key, if you know of any M key style external enclosures that would be very helpful as i need it asap. Thanks!

Why can't you just plug an external drive into your USB port and then back up the SSD...?


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

They don't make them.  I'm fairly certain that it would only work on a Thunderbolt connection anyway.  The NVMe protocol runs on a PCIe interface (as opposed to AHCI, which runs on a SATA interface).


Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

If you have a desktop,this is your best bet https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=1Z5-0018-00020&cm_re=m.2_adapter-_-1Z5-0018-00020-_-Product
Remove the m.2 drive from laptop,plug it into the adapter,then plug it into the mobo and back up the data.

Create a bootable USB drive, then copy everything over.

Then you will need another laptop or PC that has an M.2 slot.
