Default Access Root Files From Computer

My galaxy S4 recently suffered from a pressure crack in the LCD. I was wondering if there is a way to access root files in my phone from my PC or MAC. I have a replacement phone coming in the mail tomorrow and would like to rescue my data.

If you have the proper drivers loaded, when you plug it into your PC/MAC, you should be able to drag off the files from the phone. Same thing happened to me, and I was able to rescue files from the internal SD.

I also would like to know how to access the ROOT files as well.

I just used Samsung's program "Kies" and I was able to back everything up I needed.
