I recently upgraded the hard-drive on my Macbook Pro 13" early 2015 model. I'd like to use the old 128gb hard-drive as an external USB disk, but I'm having trouble finding the adapter to make it a USB drive. This MacBook Pro uses a proprietary storage drive connector.

So far I've bought the wrong adapter (for M.2 drives to fit the Macbook, which is the wrong direction.)

The model number of the old hard-drive is MZ-JPV1280/03 (Samsung).

I have this NGFF-to-USB3 box standing by:

It is quite possible that there may not be an adaptor. I don't believe Apple used these for very long, so...

I would think returning it and getting one of the OWC drive adapters for that specific drive would do the trick. Like this


And to destroy an old SSD? Take a hammer to the individual chips on the drive's circuit board, that should do it. Try and recover data from plastic and silicon shards...
