Windows Central Question

I dropped my phone and smashed the screen and now I can't back it up as I can't enter my security pin. Is there any way I can back it up? Ive tried connecting it to the computer but not information appears to help me and Ive tried ringing microsoft but they are not open today. I have to return this phone to get a replacement tomorrow morning and I want to back up photos etc on it so I don't lose them.

IF you're talking about Backup (the Setting on the phone) >> Plug it in overnite w WiFi ON, it'll backup to One Drive.
BUT ...
IF you're talking about getting the pictures / music / videos etc. off the phone - without Auto backup ON, you're screwed !
