My smartphone display hardware driver in motherboard is not working. Repair this would cost me loss of data.

My phone is actually starting but can't see anything.

I can see listed device in fastboot devices

Then I booted into custom twrp recovery fastboot boot twrp.img

As at this point I am pretty sure that I entered into recovery mode showing adb devices listed my device there

Then the problem occuring is when I try to pull internal storage data it is showing as adb pull /sdcard/dcim/camera showing error

remote object '/sdcard/dcim/camera' does not exist

    It is probable that your storage is encrypted. Assuming TWRP is your recovery, it asks for decryption credentials on boot. Use adb shell to check storage is mounted and decrypted. If not, decrypt it using adb shell twrp commands. Check the usage using adb shell twrp --help. – Firelord Jun 17 '20 at 13:29
  • I can see my storage is not mounted, can you please provide any article to perform mounting ? – Jayant Nagle Jun 17 '20 at 13:46
  • The recovery is a separate OS. Therefore it is possible that partitions are mounted but to a different directory. Hence you would have to adapt the path. – Robert Jun 17 '20 at 14:34
  • run 'adb pull /tmp/recovery.log' and check for "successful" decrypted. use a different recovery (for xiaomi there is orangefox or redwolf) btw linux file system is case sensitive. in TWRP /data/media/0 is bind mounted as ext4 file system, therefore path must be /sdcard/DCIM/Camera – alecxs Jun 17 '20 at 21:03
