Can't unscrew the back screws to open up computer

My macbook air display got broken so I decided to buy a new one rather than spending a bunch of money on just replacing the display. I want to take out the ssd in my old computer to then transfer the data to the new computer but the T5 screwdriver I bought, doesn't seem to fit, even though it is the type pf screwdriver I need.

Anyone else run into this issue?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

As the others have stated, you need a P5 Pentalope :-)

Be aware that the harddrive is not a standard 2.5 SSD, but rather a flash-drive where you also need a special tool to read and transfer data
