    Hi all,

    I managed to trash my 2012 Retina MacBook Pro and the insurance thankfully replaced it. They have asked me if I want the SSD back to recover the data. I would like to do this but am not sure of what kind of enclosure to buy to read the drive. I'm, under the impression it's M.2 but a modified Apple version? If anybody could help me it would be appreciated. Thanks!

    This doesn't answer your question directly, but I upgraded my 2012 Retina MBP's SSD a few years ago with a Transcend JetDrive 720 SSD. It came with an external enclosure in which to put the old SSD. Here is a link to the drive I bought, so you get an idea of what the external enclosure needs to be:

    Edit: Did a little digging-around for ya, this case should do the trick:
