Default [Q] Problem at recovering data from broken Nexus 7

Greetings! I own a Nexus 7 from 2012, the Wi-Fi 16GB model. Two weeks ago, I found my tablet with its screen cracked, and, as I expected to be the case, the touchscreen has become completely unresponsive. My tablet has a pattern lock on it, so I cannot access my data to copy them on my desktop.

I have Android 4.4.2, my bootloader is unlocked and I'm rooted. I flashed clockwork on it. Fastboot recognizes my device, I enter recovery mode successfully. All is fine, until I try to pull my files from the device, because for some reason I cannot access the sdcard mount.

Do you have any idea what I can do now? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Get a USB mouse and plug it in then transfer your data to cloud storage like Google drive the other option if by chance you have left USB debugging on is to make a backup of user data via wugfresh nexus toolkit
