I have my Galaxy S2 connected to Windows 10 laptop via Kies air. The charging/usb port on the phone is broken. I can see everything on the phone on my laptop now. But there isn't a clue how to save it to my pc. Is it already automatically saved since I can view it on the pc? Where does it save to?
When I figure out how to back it up, can I view it on my pc without the phone connected? Do I have to access via Kies, or is it viewable in another app as well?
Wow! I had this connected, changed the battery in my phone, and now can't connect no matter what I do...

I've never bothered with Kies. Mostly, because anything I was interested in backed up to Google. In any case, there are apps out there you can use. There are several file managers that work over wifi rather than on the wire. I wound up using AirDroid (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid) for a situation where my husband needed to get files off his computer to his phone on a regular basis. It does more than just file management, but it was very straightforward for what he wanted to do.
