Did you perform a backup via adb backup command? – Robert Mar 8 '13 at 10:59

You mean that you want to see the Content/folders of the Internal Memory

Let me say:

Yes it is possible. And that, being said, you cannot see all the data in your android phone.

How is it possible? It is a lengthy process tough.

  • Download Eclipse+ Android SDK from here.
  • Install and configure remaining packages by referring from here.
  • Enable USB debugging of your android phone/tablet:

[as in Android 2.3 GingerBread]

Your Home Screen->Menu->Settings->Application Settings->Development->USB Debugging.
  • Simply connect the phone to the data cable and the data cable to your PC.

  • On among the top panels of the Eclipse IDE, you shall see DDMS. Click it and it shall show some tabs above. Select to enable "File Explorer"...

All the nodes shown below are your Internal Memory files/ Folders, but with some root limitations.

In Case your Device is not shown in File Explorer.

  • Navigate to= Drive:\ANY_FOLDER\adt-bundle-windows-x86\sdk\platform-tools\abd.exe Using Command Prompt.
  • Enter: adb devices -l

Now you shall see the response as:

List of devices attached
Samsung Galaxy Ace          device

If you see it: Go to DDMS tab in Eclipse IDE. The Folders are shown.

If you cannot: Then thats all what is possible and you have to suffice your curiosity till this point! And the only alternative remains is ROOTING the DEVICE which can dangerous.
