Display Broken, need to transfer files to PC and wipe clean
Hello! First time poster, here.
My Display cracked and died a slow death transitioning first to pink, then eventually to black. The phone is functional otherwise. I got a replacement and am currently using it, but now I must send my old phone back. Problem is, I would like to retrieve my files/photos/data and I do not feel comfortable sending the phone with any of my personal information still on it.
I know, I know ... I was damn stupid and did not back up my information beyond my contacts. I will never make that mistake again, and am using a combination of dropbox and google to backup my stuff.
I connected the old display-less phone to my pc via USB, and can see the file directories, but my pc seems to think it's a camera. I can't 'mount as USB drive' because I have no display. Now, I can't find my 'gallery' of images that I would like to transfer to pc and delete from phone. In fact, the only jpg files I can find in the entire directory are in a folder called "Downloads" and are only those I received as attachments to text messages or emails. My own photos are no where to be found.
Any advice? I would be MOST appreciative! :)
