Are there any other programs that I can use to retrieve data from an S5 with a broken screen?

I am unable to find the phone model number in the list in Dr. Phone. Do you know of any other way or an app to use to get data off of an S5 with a broken screen? The method of recovery in the article does not work for my particular device. I have tried: Plugging it into the PC. Using an HDMI connector. I think it was caused by: The phone was not set up for USB debugging, so here I am.
