    Default how to find USB mass storage

    HI,

    There is no usb mass storage option for the S4, unless you root it and install an app from the play store or xda (kitkat) that switches between MTP and mass storage. But even then, mass storage would only be available for the sd card and not the internal user memory. The internal user memory is not an individual partition, thus can't be mounted as mass storage.

    From the internal user storage, you need linux, then make an image of the data partition of the phone, mount it in linux, then use a linux application to scan for deleted files. I havent done it, I dont remember where I read they did it that way.
