    Because of stupid me locking myself out of my phone, I had to factory reset it.

    I was under the impression that I could run any data recovery software on the internal storage of my phone, and get my data back.
    But this isn't working, all the data recovery softwares including Dr. Fone don't get anything for me.

    Are there any ways to do this on the GS5?

    Well, the first thing you did "wrong" was to not make a copy of your phone's info before you got locked out.

    I'm guilty of that having spent last weekend rebuilding my phone after doing a factory reset to OEM virgin plain vanilla.

    Then I got Kies 3.0 and installed that on my PC, then I made a image clone copy of my phone.
    I plan on doing that once in a while to capture the current state of any new apps I install. That way you don't have to download all the apps again. You have them cloned on your PC.

    Where did you save your data? external memory or internal memory ?
    if you save the data in external memory which can make the situation much more easier, you just need to prepare a card reader and plug with your external memory card. And recovery software can easily detect your phone out.
    but if it was saved in internal memory, you may need to loot your phone, because the recovery software may require looted phone, so that the software have the authority to access to your phone. maybe that is why the Dr fone can not detect your phone.
