OWC’s Envoy Pro enclosures allow you to repurpose a factory-installed Mac SSD as a portable external drive. Follow this guide to learn how to install your SSD into the enclosure.

If you still need to complete your SSD upgrade, find your Mac starting from this page and look for the SSD Replacement guide.

Note: OWC Envoy Pro enclosures are designed for use with factory-installed Mac Solid State Drives, and will not work with other PCIe replacement drives and adapters, including OWC’s own Aura Pro drive.

  2. Carefully insert your Mac OEM SSD as shown at left, with the golden contact pads below the connector pins facing upward. The SSD might take a significant amount of force to insert. Make sure you have the orientation correct before you apply any pressure. When the SSD is fully inserted, you should barely be able to see the golden contact points at the top of the drive, and the notch at the bottom of the drive should be aligned with the hole for the screw in the enclosure.

    Super simple. Installed mine in about 1 minute after installing my new Aura Pro X2. Haven’t tested yet as I’m still restoring my MacBook Pro from time machine back up.

Conclusión

Once your drive is installed, you can transfer data from it, or use Disk Utility to format it and use it as a Time Machine backup.

Does anyone know why the OWC Envoy Pro enclosure DOES NOT work with the OWC’s Aura Pro drive? I have noticed the warning (included above as well) that the enclosure only works with “factory-installed Mac Solid State Drives”. One would think that if the OWC Aura Pro drive can serve as a replacement for a Mac SSD that it should work in the Envoy Pro enclosure as well. The reason that I ask is that it would be much easier to format and transfer data to the Aura Pro drive via the enclosure rather than having to do this all after installation in the Mac computer.

I have OWC 480Gb SSD for MacBookAir mid 2012. I called OWC to ask the same question. I was told that it actually was a Heat matter, that it would work but at my own risk. I feel I was lucky to get that response and that they probably do not give it any more. I tried it with success, keeping the Enclosure lid open. I would not use it extensively though. For extra safety you can always use a small fan to cool it up. I think you can respect their recommandations by booting from the external enclosure with the original Mac SSD in it and then Clone it to the internal freshly formatted OWC SSD. I now have another OWC 480Gb SSD for MacBookAir 2015. Am I going to have the guts to also give it a try ? Just to play safe I will try not to. So I would suggest that a Heat Monitoring Program be installed and that both Original Apple and OWC SSD Temperature be monitored and compared.
