I forgot my pattern! I'm using Moto E2, how to recover without data loss?

P.S: no recovery option available using Gmail account!

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover your pattern using a Motorola Android device such as the Moto E2 without losing data if you do not have a Gmail account. It all depends whether or not you have an SD card on the phone. That may have some photos, music and other data on it that you can transfer to your computer for archiving before going about the task of performing a hard factory reset on your phone. Once accomplished, the hard factory reset will wipe all of the data off of your phone.

I cannot boot up into the system-bootloop Lenovo a816?

Hello! I have a problem with my smartphone Lenovo a816, it is in a bootloop after turning it on the computer (without battery and with a memory card inserted). I cannot reset my phone by factory reset. The red menu is not displayed completely. I think that is the flash module failure, cannot reinstall the software by GPST, it shows "waiting for reset device and then the bootloop appears. Please help me. Thank You. After several restarts, it boots up an Android even without the battery inserted. I've tried USB debugging option and MTK Android multitools with ADB. Help!. I have tried: Factory reset. USB debugging. MTK multi tools. GPST. Lenovo downloader. I think it was caused by: Bootloop or flash-failure

I have Lenovo Vibe K5 note. I have forgotten the screen lock pattern & need to unlock it now, without loosing any data. I do have the Gmail account too. What has to be done?? It wasn't much useful to my model.

All over again it would lead to factory reset only, at last. But I want to unlock without the factory reset (without losing any data).
