My old phone (LG Stylo 5+) bricked recently and i got a new phone under cricket (Moto g pure) however on my old phone I had some locked folders, and thus files, in my photo gallery all of which were stored on my SD card. When I put the SD card into my new phone all my unlocked files are available, but my locked ones, while showing up in the files app, say that they are unable to open/play. I need access to my photos and videos again but don't know how to get access to the without my old phone, which as mentioned before is completely bricked and unable to turn on period.

Hey @King Furgo have you tried accessing the files on a computer? They may be corrupted or not compatible with your new phone’s software.

I don't have any cords that have data transfer capability and as of right now I don't have the means to purchase one.
