I have a non-working mid-2012 Retina Macbook Pro with its original 256 gb SSD. It died from a water spill. I will likely eventually sell it as-is not working. But first I need to copy everything on the SSD and then reformat it. I plan to use my older laptop, a late 2008 15" MacBook Pro until I get a new machine - possibly when Skylake arrives. I need to get the data from the rMBP to the older MBP. I looked into enclosures for the SSD, but the ones I have seen stress that they require USB 3.0 to work. The older laptop does not have USB 3.0, and neither do any of our other machines. So my question is simply is there any way to get the data from the rMBP SSD to the older MBP or to an external drive? The rMBP does not work even in target disk mode. I have no problem open it up and removing the SSD, but how can I connect to the SSD to get the data and to reformat it?
