Access data on Apple Fusion Drive [Updated]
I have an iMac 27" (late 2012) i7 with 3TB Fusion Drive. The main board is dead and will cost me much to replace it, therefore, I'm planning to buy a Mini M1 and be able to access my work saved on the fusion drive.
Some websites say that both HDD and SSD should be accessed at the same time due to some sort of data blocks distribution that I don't understand. My question is, if I buy a 3.5" enclosure with power supply, would I be able to access the HDD as an external drive, or do I have to use those expensive software/hardware to do so?
Should you require more details or need any clarification, please let me know.

When I try to mount is I get
Could not mount “disk4s2”. (com.apple.DiskManagement.disenter error -119930868.)

What is your goals here? You need to give us a bit more! Which drive are you moving out the SATA HDD or the blade SSD? And why.
The two drives make up the fusion drive set so it would be helpful in knowing if one is failing or failed
@danj Hi Dan, thank you for your reply. The main board of my imac 27 (late 2012) is dead, but the drives are fine. I have 3TB fusion drive, I just want to be able to access the files on the drive. I read somewhere that both SSD and HDD should be accessed at the same time if I want to retrieve any data, because some blocks are distributed between both drives. Thank you in advance Dan.
