A few days ago, I bought a Samsung Galaxy S9 to replace my old Samsung S7. But after I copied data from my old phone to the new one, all data have become messy. Thus, I need to manage these files in specific places again, and for those media files like music, photos, and videos, I can manage them as only a piece of cake. Nonetheless, when it comes to the messages and contacts, I really feel headache. While my phone is linked to a computer, they are invisible. Where do the data hide? Is there any way that can bring out the data, so that I am able to manage them on computer? It is very tired and time-consuming to manage these data on my phone directly, so anyone can help? - From a Samsung user
