I have a HTC One M7 that I need to get all the (~1GB) files off. The problem is that the phone restarts after about 10-30sec, so I don't have time to manually copy the files.
- USB debugging is enabled
- the phone is not rooted
The phone restarts even while fast charging and re-calibrating the battery did not help.
I then attempted to download the files to my computer while the phone was off/in recovery mode. The phone is detected in recovery mode on Windows, but I can't get any files off. I downloaded adb but it does not work in recovery mode.
I ran out of options so I was going to factory reset to fix the restarting bug, and then try to recover the data with an android recovery tool.
Since this is inherently risky, I was hoping that a better option to backup the phone would be provided.
P.S. Its not my phone. I know how to back up XD
