Question [Q] Backup files if phone is locked (forgot pin/pattern) ?

Hi guys, I would really appreciate it if you could help me out with this issue.

Basically, I have got a Galaxy S and typed my pin wrong a few times and now the screen is locked and I have to use my gmail account to unlock it. The issue is that I have forgotten my gmail account.

I have too many important files on my phone that's why I don't want to do a hard reset straight away. Is there a way to back up my phone? I have an older version of cyanogenmod installed (ICS) and have access to the recovery menu.

I tried to go to the recovery menu and mount sd card but nothing showed up on my PC. I guess there's something wrong with the drivers?

Regards,
