Blade Type SSD in Lenovo X1 carbon's

 We have started to use X1 carbons in our environment and the hard drive seems to be a blade-type SSD.  I can not begin to tell you how little information there is on the www about this type of drive let alone adapters to read them.  Most information about blade-type seems to refer to the MacBook air, which obviously I am not referring to.  

 Even Lenovo has very little information about this.  I am trying to find out if there is another reference I should be using for this type of drive as to be able to find adapters or encasements for recovering data from fouled computers.   I certainly would think its a bleeding edge technology, but there has to be something out there to be used as an adapter (also, sandisk does not provide any info from what I have found either.

Thanks in advance.

Well I'd look up this Lenovo  model and then look at the technical specs
Like this
•Ethernet via USB dongle (Optional)
•Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6205S (2x2 AGN)
•Bluetooth 4.0
There's some feedback here
ssd remove it from the Lenovo connect it to a PC
You could use
Black SATA to Dual USB 2.0 for 2.5" HDD SSD Cable Connector Data Transfer
USB 3.0 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD External Enclosure Case - Black

there's plenty of images of a Blade SSD including an adapter for it
Look here
Does this help?
