    My S7 Edge was damaged badly, recently, and around 75% of the screen is unable to be viewed. The screen still recognizes swipes, and I can navigate the phone (with many attempts):

    I can locate and view photos/videos
    I can locate programs and load them
    I can still log-in with thumb scan

    I can connect to a PC, the drivers will upload and install...but will not be recognized as an accessible drive nor will data be found or shown on the PC. The Windows folder will show a blank area, no metadata listed...just a large blank area.

    Any ideas on how to recover my data via my PC?
