    So.....I guess this has a short answer, that is no. But anyways.

    I need to recover data from my broken screen Samsung. Somehow someone got to recover the information in a flash drive. But all the content Im looking that should be under data/data.... is nowhere...

    My point is, are those files "hidden" and there is a way to acces them or is it that the phone needed to be rooted in the first place so that those files could be even copied.

    Thanks a lot in advance

    Basically, the phone needs rooting to be able to access those files.

    Unless you have government/police type tech, and have time and money to spend, that sort of thing is generally out of reach.
