Accessing data on a tablet with a broken LCD

So a while back, my Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 had the screen basically crushed. It remains responsive, but about as usable as square wheels. I tried to plug it into my PC via USB and it reads as a device, but no files or folders of any kind show up. My images (that WERE backed up) are safe, and the apps I KNOW were, but all my music, no. I was wondering, as it is going to be replaced in a matter of days or so anyway, how can I get to the music (and possibly the other images) somehow?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If your files were backed up (externally or cloud) you should be able to recover them. You already tried what I was going to say by hooking it up to your PC. IF your PC recognizes it and see a file structure, the files are probably still there. They might just be in a folder you have not checked. It all depends on how the music was saved and the default folder location for that app.

    Probably the files are there. Have you ever synced this tab with cloud? You can try with a 3rd party tool like adr.exe (free to use) and you can get your data back.

    I got a new tablet recently and got a micro SD card for storage. I have heard many stories like yours where the tablet get damaged. It's easier to pull an SD Card than to hope to recover from a damaged device. But seeing as you were able to get some files of, I assume the others are there. You may just have to hunt for them or scan the tablet directory for the music by file extension.

    The first thing I'd do is plug in an external monitor. I always keep one or two around just for stuff like this. I've picked up old ones from junk stores and electronic recyclers for very little cost.
