This is the first hardware-oriented forum I've run across, and it appears to be for a specific brand, so I apologize for being off-topic, but hope that some kind soul is familiar with these hardware intricacies and can take a few moments to enlighten me.
I can't find a compatible USB enclosure for Intel 660p SSD 2.0TB that was removed from a dead 2015 MacBook Pro. It has a notch near the center of the row of contacts that doesn't match the plastic pin in an enclosure I bought, which is closer to the right end of the row of contacts. Photos online of SSDs and enclosures (including Intel 660p!) (also including a diagram of B, M, and B+M keying) show the notch(es) closer to the end(s) of the row, so I wonder if the center notch indicates the SSD is intended ONLY for internal drive and not a USB external drive. Here's the specific contact arrangement on my drive, with contacts 'c', spaces (width of 2 contacts) 's', and the notch at 'S': ccc s cccc s ccccccc S ccccccc s cccc.
Thanks very much.

Is it possible for you to post a picture of the 660p SSD here in the forum?

Hi. MacBook has proprietary pinout. To use this SSD anywhere else you'll need "12 + 16 Pins to M.2" adaptor. It's only a couple of dollars, but probably won't fit into external enclosure.
