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

It depends on what killed your computer. It may have damaged the drive. You might be able to find an external HDD enclosure online. Then transfer the data to another computer. I do not think you phone will have the capacity to hold the entire drive contents and I can’t think of an interface that will let you pick and chose file to copy directly to your android phone. Another thing is not all formats may be compatible  depending on the OS of the computer.

    If your HDD is  completely not responding then probably it is very difficult to recover data/ files/ folders. There are some tools/ software that can claim the job successfully but ultimately their job is not fully satisfied.

    As you are not a techie person, it is more difficult for you. Please try this link, that can be helpful, https://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/free-data-recovery-software.htm
