Question [Q] Cracked screen, can't get past lock. How can I retrieve data from the phone?

Accidentally dropped my phone the other day, screen is cracked and now I can't unlock the phone because of the pattern lock. Now, when I plug my phone to the PC nothing happens because the phone must be set to allow the PC to read the contents.. but since I can't unlock the phone to change that setting, I can't do anything atm. All data is in the internal memory of the phone, so no sdcard. (I regret I had it this way)

Is there maybe a software that can do this?

Phone is ZTE Max aka Boost Max.
