    i have samsung s7 edge with probably a faulty motherboard. It is none responsive, i tried chaning the battery but still none responsive . They told me it is probably a faulty mother biard.
    I have some files that is stored on the pribate folder. Is there a way i can recover these files without going to the repair guys as i dont want them to check the files?... by just replacing the motherboard will i be able to turn on my phone normally with the private folder availble?
    Thank you

    The storage is soldered to the board, unless the folder was on the SD card. If the board is replaced, anything you had stored on internal storage goes with it.

    Welcome to Android Central! That would seem unlikely, because any data stored locally would be on the memory chips on the motherboard. Replacing the motherboard would mean replacing the chips as well -- they're not going to remove the chips from the current motherboard and solder them onto the new one.

    You'd probably have to look into a data recovery specialist, which may cost in the hundreds of dollars.
