    Welcome to Android Central! USB Mass Storage (i.e., the ability to mount the phone's storage as a USB drive) is an outdated feature, from back when phones had their Internal Storage partitioned into a smaller app installation area and a larger "internal SD" (the latter of which could be mounted as USB Mass Storage). With modern Android devices, you can connect using MTP (media transfer protocol), which allows the computer to see most folders (but not all of them -- namely, the system folders).

    You don't. If you didn't make backups, they're gone forever.

    Review this guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ted-files.html. If the files were on Internal Storage, you'd need to root the phone (which in itself might overwrite some of the data).

    And a factory data reset does more than just delete files - it wipes out data. The chance of recovering data after a FDR are slim to none - if you're fluent in SQL, you might have a slim chance, but data that wasn't saved in databases is probably gone forever. (Which is why everyone always tells everyone to back up anything important. Restoring from a backup is trivial.)
