I had my first real encounter with an M.2 disk a number of years ago, when a (non-computer-guy) friend asked med for help with some problems with his disk. I opened the case to see the model of the disk, intending to move it to another computer for testing. There was no disk there! At least none that I could see. I was extremely bewildered. Fortunately, the PC was so new that my friend still had the documentation that came with it, and I could read not only that the disk is an M.2, but also where I could find it on the mainboard. Oh, so that's what an M.2 looks like! I had heard mention of M.2, but had never looked up a picture of one, and would not have recognized it without the documentation.

At that time, I obviously didn't have an alternate M.2 reader, but we fixed the problem anyway - it turned out to not be related to the disk.

If you open the case in search of a SATA flash disk, you may not find it. I am not familiar with the machine referred to, and do not know whether to expect SATA or M.2 disk. From Amazon.com it looks as if some BeeLink models have SATA, others have M.2.

Note to OP: M.2 and SATA type flash disks are completely different animals; they need different kinds of adapters. If you buy an M.2 adapter: Some of them have USB-C connectors only. If you want to read the disk on an old PC lacking C sockets, you should make sure that the adapter has that option. Usually, you can expect significantly higher speed on the C socket.

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
