Can I recover data from a Windows phone? 

Last week, I accidentally dropped off my HTC 8X. The phone itself does still work, but the screen is broken. It would not be a big problem. But the problem is that I can't access all of the pictures and video files stored on the phone. I've tried plugging it into my computer, which I had no luck with because I have to unlock the phone to be able to use it. Is there any other Windows phone data recovery solution that can help me exports my media files?
