    The phone was ran over several times so it can't be used to retrieve info. The files are all on my computer now. Is there anyway to retrieve this data, I'm most concerned about the pictures saved. Thanks!

    Depends which phone ?
    For example if it was Samsung phone and you move those to new Samsung phone in its file manager might be able to work .

    Welcome to Android Central! If the files or SD card were encrypted, then I doubt you can retrieve them, since the encryption key was lost along with the phone.

    Without the encryption key you would be forced to do a "brute force" attack on the files. There are some federal agencies with enough CPU resources to do that, but no one at your/our level.
