A firend had an Acer Aspire S7 which failed for hardware reasons (?integrated batery) and was returned to the manufacturers has had the ssd posted back to him as he needed the data on it.

How do you access the data on it as he tells me none of his current (old) machines have the relevant connections ?

Simplest way.

Get an external USB enclosure for SATA disks and plug it into a USB port

Edit: It appears the SSD is mSATA, the connections are the same, they just look different.
Send him to the local computer shop, they'll have something that'll do exactly what he wants.

As above ^ (assuming it's not mSATA?)

Thanks for the quick reply.

I think I have a sata/ide to usb adapter which I use to plug/access old hardrives which I bought from jcars a couple of years ago.

After googling it has an CMT-128L3M esata ssd, so would the adapter above work ? or should he just visit a computer shop.

Thanks in advance

It appears the connections on mSATA are closer together, so it'd have to be mSATA specific.
