    This adapter has two functions. The first one is M.2 NVMe (PCIe interface) to SFF-8643 converter. The 2nd one is M.2 SATA to SATA 7+15 pin converter.
    If you install M.2 NVMe SSD on the converter + SATA cable. It doesn't work. No matter you link USB again.
    If you install M.2 NVMe SSD on the converter + SFF-8643 cable. It can work and speed to 32Gbps.

    If you want to clone your M.2 SSD into USB, you must find the adapter is M.2 NVMe to USB.
    you can find it on the market.

    The card can work on SATA, but only M.2 SATA SSD, not NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD.

    Has anyone found an nvme to usb adapter yet? albeit slow performance, but a one-time slow performance task of cloning in one pass.

    Nothing that I've come across.

    Your alternative for cloning is to use software which lets you make a backup image onto an external storage device (if you haven't got an external HDD then it's time to get one for your backups) and then restore that image onto the new SSD. Some people have recommended Macrium Reflect for this purpose although I've never used it.

    I actually have a Thunderbolt 3 on my laptop. I tried searching for something going that route, but the only thing I could find was an enclosure for $249 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01K5Z13I2) and a pcie card for $20 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01798WOJ0). To me this seems way to overpriced, especially being that esata, usb3.1, etc followed this same trend, historically. I'll just do it in two passes like John suggested. Downloading Macrium Free version.

    I'm still looking for a modern nvme to usb converter myself. I dupe a number of drives and while usb isn't as fast it would be much more convenient for me.

    Hello.

    Funnily enough, I am trying to extract some data from the same Samsung M.2 SSD as in these pictures. The drive was replaced under warranty and I need to take some old files off it.

    Can anyone advise whether the setup described here would work for recovering data? My understanding is that, according to DeLock's website, NVMe drives can only be enabled and accessed when connected via the SFF-8643 interface.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Speed and data transfer rates are not an issue as I only need to recover data.

    Thanks.
