How can I back up data from my Galaxy S4 mini, with a locked screen?

My phone suddenly got a screen lock password that we don't know, and I haven't found a way to get around it. So I'm trying to back up the info so I can do a factory reset without losing anything. I have tried: Samsung Kies says I have to use SmartSwitch which won't backup a locked device
