With the help of Thunderbolt extension module you can perform following operations:

2016 and 2017 generations of MacBooks have non-extractable SSD drives, so the only way to handle such drives is by booting the MacBook in Target mode.

In fact, with Insight’s Thunderbolt extension you can operate on all Macbooks the same way, hard drive extraction is no longer necessary.

Here is a detailed explanation how to connect a MacBook with this extension and how to operate it.
